German term or phrase: gleisend
Im verglasten Rundbau des Restaurants efreut sich der Blick nicht nur an feinen Tellerkreationen, sondern an den rundum aufragenden Felsgipfeln im **gleisenden** Licht der Wintersonne.

Pls can anyone shed any light (sorry :-) ) on what kind of light this is? Many thanks!
