After sunset following a winter storm, a snow-capped Mt Diablo is bathed in Alpenglow as the dark blue shadow of the earth rises into the evening sky. This phenomena occurs about 20 minutes after sunset when the air is extremely dry and clear. A long exposure shows movement in the clouds and foreground trees.
