Creeping Mitten Shadow

The clouds to the west kept hiding the sun. First just the West Mitten would be illuminated, then just the East one or Merrick Butte. Just watching the play of light on the land was really fun. Heavy clouds to the west had a small gap close to the horizon, so I had hopes for being able to catch the shadow of the West Mitten on the East Mitten. This was the only time the sun was able to come through the gap, but I kind of like the shadow just starting to creep up the slope to the East Mitten.
