Notes

I pulled a Cokin GND filter low enough down the frame to enhance the top half of the image, while attempting to retain the natural color of the foreground snow.

Description

I was driving through Mt. Rainier National Park, when I first noticed this scene begin to unfold. I quickly pulled over, grabbed my gear and began running toward the mountain, through the deep fresh new snow. With no idea where I was going, it seemed as if time was standing still. I must have ran about half a mile or so, when I arrived at this clearing. Of course, I then ended up waiting for about 45 minutes until the sun was low enough to cause the cloud that envelops the mountain, to glow.
