Eastern Sierra Alpenglow

I had been shooting towards the south/southeast during a very colorful sunrise Sunday morning in the Owens Valley (see my upload from yesterday, below), and glanced over to my right in time to see the mountains above Bishop lit up with some of the prettiest alpenglow I've seen in awhile. I picked up my camera and tripod and went sprinting down the road a bit to get into position for a decent comp, and was able to get about 3 shots before the color faded away. The mountains, from left to right, are Mt. Humphreys (with its head stuck in a cloud), Basin Mountain, and Mt. Tom.
