Gravity Rainbow

Persistence and will to succeed are everything. I took this picture in the summer of 2016. This was the only shot from a very failed photography trip up to Mt Rainier. A huge storm front had moved in covering the mountain in total fog destroying any possibility of a sunset and composition. As I drove off the mountain in defeat the clouds parted and the sun burned through for just a split second. I quickly pulled the car over grabbed my camera and tripod, ran down the valley and started firing away. This moment lasted less then 10 minutes before it was gone.
