    Bronze in Fine Art/Landscape

During a week spent in the backcountry of Tombstone Park in the Canadian Yukon, the sun was in short supply. While the tundra was erupting with incredible colors and the surrounding peaks were snowcapped, the clouds were ever-present. After a few failed attempts in previous days, trekked to the riverbend when the clouds showed a little promise. Then it started to rain. After waiting it out, the clouds abated just long enough to capture this brief moment of sunshine before it disappeared around the bend.
