This image is from the same sunset session that I described in the last post. As I mentioned then, I will probably never tire of taking images at sunrise or sunset from Clingmans Dome. One distinctive of this image is that I zoomed in fairly tightly on the ridges and individual trees are visible as silhouettes. The cloud layer in the west obscured the setting sun from a direct view but I still like the brilliant red that it painted the section of open sky above the horizon. I also like the contrast between the blue-hued mountains and the vibrant red of the background cloud layer.
There’s just a few images left from this fall trip. Then we’ll dig up some images from a few trips from last summer. Stay tuned.
