Photographer's Note

This was taken in Shenandoah National Park and is my 50th post from my home state of Virginia. I took it on a very early spring day on a rainy and overcast day. I was driving up Skyline drive and the view was completely socked in and you couldn't see 10 feet in front of your face. Then all of a sudden the view opened up and I was looking at this. I about had a heart attack because an area to pull off was nowhere in sight! Finally I found a good spot to pull over before it was too late.

You can see down low the trees had started to fill in but up higher it was still pretty bare at that point during early spring.

I decided to leave this relatively low contrast as it was on the day when I took it. The only post-processing was cropping and a slight sharpening after re-sizing for TE. Taken around 4pm.
