  • Story behind the image:

    In the middle of the night I was awakened and happened to look outside and to my delight it was snowing! Snow in the Las Vegas Valley is a rare occurence so just before sunrise I headed out to Red Rock Canyon to see what mother nature would devulge. As the sun came up, the fog slowly lifted and a beautiful, moody scene unfolded before me. I am so thankful that something woke me in the middle of the night and I looked out the window; otherwise I would have never captrued this wonderful image.
