Neat time lapse photograph I believe of a lone hiker ascending the cables just before sunrise.

Photo was taken in October, the sun as at a lower angle that time of year, could be sunrise.

It's a cool shot, but it's not time lapse. It is a time exposure, meaning several seconds. A time lapse would show movement as it is many images stitched together.

Judging by the movement of the stars, the shot was probably somewhere between 30 seconds and a couple minutes, making a long exposure, not a time lapse. My guess is that what your seeing on the horizon is light pollution from the Central Valley. Totally cool shot though! And FWIW, the sun angle on the group shot does indicate a (late) morning shot.

IMHO.

This is correct. Time exposure astrophotography frequently picks up what amatuer astronomers refer to as light domes, our light pollution nemisis.
