Morning in the Mountains



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I captured this wonderful sight on an early November morning last year at Hazel Mountain Overlook on the Skyline Drive in Virginia. The day started very foggy and cloudy, but as the sun came up it started to break through the fog and clouds. We came upon this sight a few minutes later.

Sandra said...

this will sound odd, don't know why i thought it, but this would be the perfect place for Icabod Crane to take his night ride.

Think I'm in Scotland! Know what you meaning about the timing. Sometimes I spot sunrises or sunsets in the making and you often barely have time to grab the camera before the magic disappears.

No matter where you are, you captured nature at her best.
