Gatlinburg Sunrise

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

Several weeks ago Betsy and I got up very early in the morning so we could get to the Gatlinburg Bypass as the sun was coming up over the Smoky Mountains.  Our timing was pretty good, and I was able to capture this image just before the sun popped over the mountain.  The mist in the valley was an added bonus.

That's a nice reward for getting up early. I don't get very good morning pics because... well, I just start too slow in the mornings. But thanks for showing me what I've been missing. :-)

Surpreendente foto, dum nascer do sol [muitos fotografam o pôr do sol, poucos o seu nascer]. Daí o merecido bónus da neblina. Parabéns, George!!
Um abraço
