Scenic Sunday # 79: Arkansas Sunrise

Sunrise Point, Mount Nebo State Park, Arkansas. December 4, 2008.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

Mount Nebo State Park in Arkansas is one of our special places to visit.  We have a favorite cabin on the mountain top and try to get there each year.  Two of the nice features of the park is that there are perfect places to view sunrises and sunsets.

This picture was taken in December, 2008, at Sunrise Point.  If you look closely on the left of the picture you can see the Arkansas River in the valley below.  But the main feature of this photo is the sun, rising over the mountains to the east, looking like a star.

    What a wonderful memory and a MARVELOUS photo. I’m wondering if you used a special filter … perhaps ‘played’ with it to get this effect … or if this was a wonderful serendipitous accident? (inquiring minds want to know these things)
    Hugs and blessings,
