Blue Ridge Sunrise

    Newer Older

    I trekked up to Blue Ridge Summit hoping to catch a nice sunrise for the 4th of July. Unfortunately the actual sunrise wasn't much to behold, there was very little color. But I waited around for the sun to rise into the low clouds, holding out that something might happen with the light. Just as the sun was about to disappear this scene showed up. The layer of humid air hovering above the mountains came to life, creating this glowing line across the horizon. With the hint of mist settled between the mountains I thought it was rather worth the wait.
