Rolling Over the Mountains

The sun looks as if it's resting/rolling on the hills in this one. Taken at 7:39 A.M. from Clingman's Dome right near the North Carolina/Tennessee border in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park .


Better detail in the 'Original' size (recommended).

    Absolutely gorgeous sunrise. One of those beautiful moments when you wish it would last and last but then it's gone all too soon.
  • Brian Hathcock 9y

    Thanks again, everyone. Lawatha, definitely wish it would've lasted longer. It always seems like forever waiting for the sun to break. When it does, the rise is so quick! This one was a beauty to watch.
