Photo of the Week

The snowy summit of Whiteface Mountain barely pokes above the clouds at dusk. The pink glow in the sky is known as the “Belt of Venus” and is commonly seen on clear days before sunrise and after sunset. It appears 10-20 degrees above the horizon on top of the Earth’s dark blue shadow that’s found just above the horizon, and the crisp low humidity days of winter seem to make this phenomenon appear stronger than other times of the year. Adirondack Mountains, New York. Prints Available.
