This is one way to celebrate the tallest mountain in lower 48 States. Awesome. I will be looking at Mt. Whitney every day now. smile

You beat me to it. smile Spotted that right away. But they seem to be using a different mountain for the desktop picture. Or is it Whitney and the angle is different or I'm just being dense?

Does anyone know what mountain is used for their desktop picture?

I'm thinking Mt Williamson?

Close, but not Whitney or Williamson.

From this page

Quote:
Highlights and shadows can also help accentuate patterns in landscapes that may not first be evident to the naked eye. In the scene below, I awaited the first light of sunrise to paint the ridges of Lone Pine Peak located in the Alabama Hills just west of Lone Pine, California. The pattern of these ridge lines were there, they were just made evident by the play of alpenglow light and shadow.


Here's a picture from an unrelated web page

Ah... thought it looked familiar, but couldn't quite place it.

Thanks.

Guess Apple just chose the best pictures of Sierra Nevada Mountains. smile



Now I'll have to climb Lone Pine Peak so I can deduct my expenses for work.

Of course, that didn't work with my boss for Yosemite or El Capitan. smile
