I have been digging through some old photos and came across another photograph from possibly the most dynamic sunrise I have experienced. I posted a panoramic from this same sunrise a while back (see below). This image was captured just minutes later. Prior to dawn, the cloud cover over Mt. Moran and the Northern Teton range was minimal, but continued to increase as light began to fill the scene. The sky progressively darkened as a storm developed over the range, eventually filling the region. At the same time, brilliant, unobstructed sunlight poured in, setting the foliage ablaze.
Later that day, the same storm that created these incredible conditions, stripped the majority of leaves from these aspens lining the bend.
