Daily Postcard: Omega Bridge Frames Rising Moon

Daily Postcard: The Omega Bridge frames the moon rising Thursday above the evening alpenglow. Alpenglow is an optical phenomenon that appears as a horizontal reddish glow near the horizon opposite of the Sun when the solar disk is just below the horizon. This effect is easily visible when mountains are illuminated, but can also be seen when clouds are lit through backscatter. Source: wikipedia.com. Photo by Marc Bailey
