A burning sky in the shadows of the morning

Glacier de la Pilatte

 

While mountaineering, the best hour of the day is most of the time always the same: when the sun rise. Fortunately, you have to wake up very often in the middle of the night to walk on glaciers and you should be at the summit not too late. For that reason, sunrises are a classic view of the mountaineer. Good for us, but this one was more dramatic than others. The weather was actually extremely foggy when we left the refuge and the sun literally ignited the sky and made the clouds disappearing.
