Sometimes we get lucky. The sky was overcast and dull when I arrived to greet the Three Sisters at this frozen creek in the early hours. But experience told me to wait, and my patience paid off when the horizon cleared but for a few short minutes just in time for sunrise.

The sky lit up like a rainbow, the colors reflecting from the winter ice and fresh layer of snow all around me like a big purple blanket over the mountains.
