Golden Hour Gleam at Alum Creek

Yellowstone National Park

Alum Creek in Yellowstone's Hayden Valley is bathed in the resplendent glow of the setting sun. The golden light kisses the snow-blanketed landscape, drawing sinuous lines of warmth across the creek's frozen edges. The reflections on the water create a pathway of light, guiding the eye through the tranquility of this winter scene. Clouds, heavy with the promise of more snow, are painted with the day's last colors, hovering over the valley in a majestic display of nature's quiet end to the day
