Rappenspitze After Rain Falls

The Austrian Alps.

The morning had been wet with low cloud. Wind picked up from the east and the sky began to slowly clear through the valley. As I continued my walk among tall conifers and fallen shale, the full and growing beauty of Rappenspitze came into view...

The play of light and shadow against bare rock and tree was overwhelming. My single wish was to share my experience with another. This photograph scarcely touches on that time: a moment soon to spread its wings as another left its mark.
