The sun shines above the snowy summit of Algonquin Peak, in the Adirondack High Peaks of New York State, on a bluebird winter day. The high winds that the alpine summit is exposed to carved the snow into interesting shapes and patterns and coated the alpine trees with rime ice. A small aperture was used to render the sun as a sunstar or sunburst. Algonquin Peak is one of the Adirondack 46 High Peaks, which are mountains above 4,000 feet in elevation. Climbing all 46 peaks and becoming a 46er is a popular hiking challenge.
