Alpenglow on the Chugach

One summer evening in 1997, Mel photographed the alpenglow on the mountains, from the vantage point of Jewel Lake road -- Anchorage, Alaska. The time was around 11:15pm ... still daylight of course! The air was very clear, and sun not long down. The camera was a Pentax K1000 with the 49mm original lens; the film stock was Kodak Royal Gold 200 ASA. This image is also scanned from a 4 x 6 print; the scan was done at 600dpi and "tweaked" a little in Irfanview to "get the most" out of an 11-year-old print which I'm sure is beginning to fade.
