Lots of snow lies on the flanks of Mt. Meeker and Long's Peak from last weekend's storm. There are moments just at sunrise when the long rays of the sun illuminate the peaks in pink and purple.
Lenticular clouds appear when strong winds form standing waves over hills or mountains and moisture in the air passing over the high point condenses as the air cools.
This cloud appears to spin in place over the foothills and is illuminated by the rising sun out of the shot to the left.
From the morning of 29 Nov 2012.
