Wildcat Ridge

Wasatch Mountains - Salt Lake City, Utah
Neffs Canyon


Good light conditions are rare enough when you aren't sitting on a peak, but when you find yourself on top of a peak or ridge when this kind of lighting occurs, you might want to hurry to Vegas, because you might be a lucky person.

I guess there's some science to it: 1) Thick high clouds above,
2) No clouds (or very few clouds) near the western horizon (for sunsets).

With these conditions, the clouds will reflect a warm reddish-orange hue over the mountains below during sunset. The results are always awe inspiring. Since I have been taking pictures, I've only been on a peak when this happens about 3-4 times.

Cottonwood Ridge
