In a story by KOMO News, meteorologist Scott Sistek offered this explanation for the unsual “chiaroscuro” effect in the above photo:
It only happens when the sun rises farther to the south as we head toward the winter solstice and has to be in the exact position to where Rainier blocks the first rays of morning light. Having a nice cloud layer around can sure act as a canvas as well!
There are several more photos in the KOMO post from similar sunrises in our area from days past.
