I made this image of the ridgeline and summit of Mount Russell from the summit of Mount Whitney in the most incredible light I'd seen in years. This is the view from the end of the John Muir Trail. The trip was outrageously cold -- coffee water re-froze in the mornings within a few minutes! I was still in the fading sunlight when I made the exposure and was so cold that I had to run inside the summit hut. This image had always been one of my favorites and so I reprinted it in the winter of 2008, taking advantage of the newest digital printing techniques and printers. This result is truly faithful to the original scene and the original transparency.
