Alpin Sunset - Murkarspitze

123/365 - Day 123 of my 365 Photo Challenge.


This photo emphasizes the beauty of mountain landscapes.


It shows the Murkarspitze (3150m) during sunset.


I came back to my accommodation from a mountain tour lasting several hours and was just about to clean my equipment when I took a look out the window.


Immediately I noticed the reddish glow of the setting sun, which just about illuminated the top of the opposite peak.


I grabbed the camera and ran out to the balcony to capture this moment.


For the photo I used my Nikkor 70-200 mm F2.8.


I was fortunate because the moment lasted only a few minutes, and the glow disappeared.


I hope you like the photo!
