This image is from one of the most unforgettable sunrises (and moments) of my life. I woke up after a terrible night's sleep in my frozen sleeping bag and headed to waterfowl lake to photograph Mount Cephren in all its glory. However, as I made my way to the lake, I realized that the entire place was shrouded in the thickest fog, which I thought dashed all my hopes of any decent images. However, as the sun rose and started illuminating the mountain peaks, it made quick work of burning through the thick layer of fog, revealing incandescent mountains, glowing in the early morning sky.
