Location: Little Cottonwood

A 30-minute drive from the heart of Salt Lake City and you're in the great Wasatch Mountains.  The light and the clouds were amazing this last week and the dusting of snow made the scene even more dramatic.  I struggled to reduce flare on some of the most dramatic light coming directly from the sun.  With the help of a sign in the Alta parking lot and cupping my hand around the lens I blocked the sun enough to get the beams of light coming through the clouds.  The mountains were back lit and light was flooding through the low clouds.  I composed my shot as best I could with as little flare as possible and it turned out to be one of my favorite shots.
