SkyWatch Friday: Morning in the Mountains

Morning sky above Gatlinberg, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee. October 14, 2011.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

The picture above was taken this past October on the Gatlinberg Bypass.  Betsy and I had gotten up early in the morning to see the autumn color in the Smokies.  The morning was cloudy and murky, and it looked as if we had picked a poor day for our trip.  But as we were taking the bypass around Gatlinberg, the sun broke through the clouds and blue skies started to appear.  I like the streaks of light on the mountain in the background and the sunny highlights in the foreground.
