Photographing a clearing storm usually provides some dramatic light. Photographing a clearing snow storm over the grand canyon is a surreal yet dramatic view. This photograph was made after a brief snowstorm passed over the canyon just before sunrise. The storm was moving east providing a nice sky display that lit up as the sun rose above the horizon. The tail end of the storm was lifting off the palisades of the desert as the desert view watchtower sits on the right edge of the horizon. A very special moment despite the freezing temperatures. Well worth the cold to witness such a beautiful scene.
