Motionless Mornings

This is a 4 image stitch that was taken at the beginning of October in the Kananaskis Region here in Alberta, Canada. 

I was eager to get out shooting on this particular morning as the seasons first snow had fallen the previous afternoon. I headed out well before sunrise hoping that the grey skies would begin to clear. It was a very still morning so I had to wait around for a while until the clouds began to pass over. I had absolutely no problems sitting, waiting, watching, and listening while the skies slowly cleared.
