Golden Hour in Pisgah

Golden Hour in Pisgah

I got up at 5:00 a.m. to drive up to the Pounding Mill Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway to photograph the sunrise. The view in this photo is looking southeast over the Cradle of Forestry in America during the golden hour. I used a longer crop to put more emphasis on the fog in the valley than on the forests below, which are still heavily shadowed.
