As an avid cloud spotter, I am constantly on the lookout for unusual cloud formations and other atmospheric phenomena. This relatively low layer of broken cumulus clouds followed an early season snowstorm, that left traces of snow down to 9,000 feet or so. I thought the late afternoon light of the blue and gray sky was beautiful, but the crepuscular rays that briefly illuminated the low-level moisture in front of Wheeler Crest to the northern part of Mt. Tom “clinched the deal” and made this one of my favorite images. This photo looks great printed on canvas.
