I should have said "below" the horizon.

Actually what I call Alpenglow is the illumination with warm light on the clouds. Is not really a matter of were you take the picture pointed to, but as to the kind of light illuminating the subject. As I said, it can be a mountain, a building, a cloud formation, etc. The key is, since the sun is already set and above the horizon, there is a very narrow window where the sun rays bouce off the edge of the earth and creates this phenomena.

I think neither are Alpenglow, I think the first has the sun above the horizon, just behind cloud, the second is still pointed at the area where the sun is but is after the sun has set.

Isn't a key point that an evening shot must be taken facing East, and a Morning shot must be taken facing West ?
