ISO 100, f/20, 2 Seconds, 19mm, 5 Shot Panorama
  The first stop yesterday morning for Tim Owens and myself along the Newfound Gap Rd in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was Carlos Campbell Overlook for the sunrise. Carlos Campbell was a big supporter of the establishing the National Park and wrote the book "Birth of A National Park".
  From the parking area at the overlook you can hear the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River raging beneath you and see the third tallest mountain in the park, Mt. LeConte (center mountain top on the right).
  What an inspiring view to see the sun come up. Although we weren't treated to epic light for sunrise, it was still fantastic. The clouds seemed to form and gather right around the mountains. Crisp blue skies with these white clouds pasted against them made for a simple, but beautiful morning.
  Next stop along the Newfound Gap Rd, a grand view of the Chimney Tops!
