The twin peaks of Agulles d'Amitges reflect in the Estany Gran d'Amitges in Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici during one of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever witnessed in an alpine environment. Thick fog was pushing over the crest of Pic de Bassiero towards the east, when all erupted in the most amazing symphony of oranges and reds. The light show only lasted for a very brief period before the clouds took over and shut the light down. The water was perfectly still that morning, so the deep azure water reflected the scene perfectly and I couldn't have wished for more stunning conditions. Can't wait to return this summer for peak wildflower season.
