Like embers of coal on hearth

It turns out that there were two directions to point my camera at Mobius Arch upon utilizing the arch like a window. One, the obvious one, was the view of Mt. Whitney seen through the arch. It is the most popular angle that attracts photographers to Alabama Hills in any given moment, in particular, with the iconic, thin strip of red glow cast across the top of the mountains in mind. The other was the field of rock formations seen through the arch, and if the sky were clear, the Big Dipper would start rotating around Polaris right above the arch. Soon, the clouds were ablaze as if somebody set them on fire. And the arch started glowing like embers of coal on the hearth.
