A clearing snow storm just before sunrise unveils fresh snow and pre dawn light. We had arrived at this location about 45 minutes before sunrise. It looked as if there would be a thick fog that would sock us in. Luckily, that fog was a snow storm moving our way. About 20 minutes before sunrise it began to snow consistently for a brief five minutes. Right on cue, the storm cleared up and provided a colorful sunrise in the opposite direction later on.
