  It's amazing what a difference a week makes.
  Last week, Tim Owens, Alex Banakas, and I set up at Clingman's Dome to try and catch an epic sunrise that just never happened.
  This morning, Tim and I took a journey up to Newfound Gap with the hope of better cooperation from Mother Nature. Mother Nature did not disappoint us this time.
  We drove just past the Newfound Gap pull off to an unnamed parking are that gave us a tremendous view down the gap with layers of mountains in the background and beautiful fall color in the foreground. The clouds were exploding with pinks, yellows, reds, and oranges against a brilliant blue sky. It was awesome!


  1. Just wonderful, Jerry! Those colors literally pop right out of the screen here at me, what a gorgeous photograph my friend!

  2. Really great sunrise! They always look so much more spectacular taken in the mountains.
