ISO 200, f/20, 30 Seconds, 19mm
  This morning my good friend Tim Owens and I went up to Look Rock on the Foothill Parkway to photograph the sunrise. The sunrise, unfortunately, was a dud from the observing platform. The full moon, however, was a huge hit.
  The moon, although it wasn't a completely full moon, was shining extremely bright down over the foothills of the Smokies and Maryville, TN. The clouds, right after a rain shower, were moving by at very fast speeds so we used the moon's bright light to turn the darkness into daylight by taking some long exposures.
  This vantage point is looking southwest. The lights you see are from Maryville, TN. The bright skies that are normally black night shine blue like the daylight from the effects of the moon and the long exposure.
