Mountain Weather

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails    Next   Previous

Mountain weather is always dramatic. Pushing clouds and air up or down to different altitudes with the effects that this has on winds and precipitation. Shafts of sun often break through at unexpected angles dramatizing the whole scene.

The shaft of light in the lower part of this picture highlights the aptly named "Sunshine Glacier". The arrangement of mountains and valleys and direction of the prevailing winds meant that often the cloud cover was lifted above this glacier so that a shaft of sunlight could illuminate it when everything else is in cloud or shadow. Even when the glacier is in shadow, it is brighter shadow than its surroundings.
