Alpenglow

The last soft light of sunset touched Old Baldy Mountain, as seen from my deck this evening. The color is SOOC, but I cropped it a little and removed an intruding telephone pole.

Trending.
A lovely landscape, Ross. I like the subtle "watercolor" tonalities.

I love how the light paints the mountains a different color during different times of the day. Beautiful.
March 5th, 2014  
Really pretty, I really like the subtle coloring as well.
March 5th, 2014  
This is gorgeous. Love the pink hues. I see you are using a watermark now.

Beautiful!

Oh, I love the alpen glow, don't you?

so purty! fav
March 5th, 2014  
This is a beauty Ross! Wonderful composition and pastel tones. Quite a view you have there!
March 5th, 2014  
Ross, what a beautiful view! The colors are soft and beautiful!

@jsw0109 Thanks for the fav, Jeff. I never get tired of my view.

@amandal Thanks, Amanda. Yes, I added a watermark after finding two stolen images in the last couple of weeks. One from my web site, and one from here. I really dislike the blemish on the photo, but so be it.
March 5th, 2014  
What a bunch of punks! Sorry that happened. I'm not bothered by your watermark. So you know...

@falcon11 @dejongdd @rangerxenos @megmills @jgpittenger @mccarth1 @smellychelli Thanks, everyone. We often have a tendency to brighten colors in our photos, but sometimes the softer colors work OK. This mountain looks different every day.
March 5th, 2014  
Beautiful capture. Love the soft pink in the sky. I'm sorry you had that incident with the stolen images, but I want to ask you how did you find out? Just for my own precautions...
March 5th, 2014  
you always take such GORGEOUS photos...its a shame someone would claim it as there own..especially here where its just for fun...to share our pictures... and enjoy each others company.... im sorry that has happened to you... great shot AGAIN!!

@anazad511 I was tipped off about the image from my web site, that was being used on a radio station web site. The 365 image was faved by someone I didn't know who didn't leave a comment. I was curious who it was, so I looked at her photos. She had a watermark that led me to her Facebook page, and my photo popped up. There were more photos by other 365ers, and they have now all been removed.

@rvwalker Ummm, you are good. I'm always suspicious of those who FAV the shots and don't leave comments. Thanks for sharing your experience.
March 5th, 2014  
What a gorgeous scene. Interesting to read about the stolen images and your reason for the watermark. Ana, your comment was also useful -- I sometimes fav without commenting when I've viewed on my iPad and am afraid the photo will be lost in the threads later in the day. Then I can go back to it more easily (and typing on my iPad is a pain). But I hadn't thought of the more suspicious reasons....@anazad511

Such beautiful light on the mountain, a gorgeous scene and capture.
March 5th, 2014  
What a beautiful view you have! Lovely shot!

What a beautiful view you have! Lovely shot

@lisamarie5 Thanks, Lisamarie. I guess thieves are common on the internet, but we will have fun here anyway.
March 5th, 2014  
@anazad511 @taffy As long as I know someone, I don't get suspicious of a fav without a comment, so don't worry about that. In this case, this person had a distinctive name that got my attention, and she was completely new to me.
March 5th, 2014  
@sansjuan Thanks, Nita. I wondered if the soft light and pale color would be appreciated.
March 5th, 2014  
@soozieqt Thank you Susan. I never get tired of this view and its seasonal variations.
March 5th, 2014  
I sometimes fav without commenting when I'm looking at the end of the day and tired. Particularly if there are already a bunch of comments. Figure they don't need another "Cool!" from an amateur. Would've done that tonight except I wasn't thrilled with the "suspicious" comment.
March 5th, 2014  
Wonderful photo and what a view
March 5th, 2014  
@johenn Thanks for the fav, Jo. I'm afraid that this whole thing seems to have given the wrong impression, because I do not view every fav without a comment as "suspicious". In addition to the lack of comment, this person had a very strange screen name which was new to me, and had no profile information. It was the combination of circumstances that raised a red flag, not just the lack of comment. I appreciate your concern, though.

@nicolecampbell Thanks, Nicole. I love the view, and the light seems to make it change constantly.
March 5th, 2014  
This moves me emotionally - the pale coral tones of the sky are breathtaking. FAV.
March 5th, 2014  
Beautiful. Fav. Envy that view you have, Ross!
March 5th, 2014  
Beautiful capture!!! Gorgeous lighting!
March 5th, 2014  
Beautiful sky and color
March 5th, 2014  
This is so beautiful. The composition and the evening colours are fantastic. Fav.
March 5th, 2014  
Beautiful composition and subtle coloring. Really nice.
March 5th, 2014  
Good choice to remove the telephone pole, beautiful pink watercolor
March 5th, 2014  
Deb
This is a great shot!
March 6th, 2014  
Beautiful and serene

@soboy5 Thanks for a wonderful comment and for the fav, Danny. That makes me feel great.
March 6th, 2014  
@ivan Thanks for the fav, Ivan. The mountains are gorgeous, but I have foreground rooftops that get in the way.
March 6th, 2014  
@dolphin Thanks for the fav, Molly. It was a gorgeous evening.
March 6th, 2014  
@monkeykid @kbird61 @libertylady @mauriciorodriguez @dgrynn @darylo Thanks, everyone. I wasn't too sure if the subdued color would be appreciated.
March 6th, 2014  
Is that your view! Wow! Gorgeous light and sight!
March 6th, 2014  
Beautiful capture.
March 7th, 2014  
@sassik @moxy Thanks, Sassik and Shelly. Yes, this is my view from my second story deck, but I look over the roofs of several houses, so it isn't at all pristine.
March 7th, 2014  
Beautiful soft tones and mood in this image. FAV
March 8th, 2014  
@pflaume Thanks for the fav, Lisa. I never get tired of this view.
March 9th, 2014  
Beautiful for me
March 9th, 2014  
@peterdegraaff Thanks for the fav, Peter. I really regret missing your visit here. You could have watched this mountain from my deck.
March 9th, 2014  
Very beautiful light indeed! What a great view you have.
March 10th, 2014  
@kiwichick Thanks, Lesley. I have to look over several rooftops to see this, but I never get tired of the view.
