I took this photo in front of our rented condo in Depoe Bay Oregon on December 8, 2013 after a late fall snowfall. When I first went out it was cloudy, with only a thin band of illuminated sky showing below the cloud cover. However, I persisted in the cold and shot away. Then, just after the orb of the sun dipped below the horizon the clouds dissipated and a luminous pink appeared in the clouds, on the ocean (Pacific), and on the ice between the shoreline rocks. Persistence paid off.
