The day I took this photo the luck was on my side. When I entered the Bryce early in the morning the sky was clear without any clouds, it was boring. But, later that day the weather changed and the rain started at least five times providing me with some beautiful cloud formations in between.
It was middle of May and I did not expect to see any snow and when I spotted the traces of the white stuff I knew it was my chance to place it against a beautiful sky.

I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod but used only middle exposure for editing.
I used Lightroom Rapid Editing for Landscapes, applying Natural preset first from Landscape Collection and then used TOOLKIT adjustments.
