Light Catcher

Tikaboo Valley

The small, rocky peak, rising from the Mt. Irish Range bordering the eastern edge of Tikaboo Valley in Nevada, is bathed in alpenglow as the sun begins to drop behind the Groom Range to the west. The shape of the clouds, pointing toward the peak, coupled with their decreasing luminosity and the brightness of the peak makes it seem that the light is being drawn into the peak.
