13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cotton Candy over Yellowstone

After an 4am wake up call I got out to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone only to see a bunch of clouds fogging up the view. The sun was rising quickly. I didn't think I would get much of a sunrise but for a brief few minutes the sun shined through the thick cloud cover and painted pink cotton candy across the sky. This lasted for no more than 2 minuets and it was gone.
