These peaks along the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone are so majestic and of ethereal beauty when you're there in person but quite elusive to capture. I got this shot early in the morning when the sun just shone on the near peaks but the valley below was still enshrouded in a bluish haze, providing good contrast. Moments later, everything lit up and the sense of distance was lost. So was the absolute silence as the tour buses started to arrive.

At that fleeting moment, there I was. And the peaks.
