Highlands Sunrise - Whitesides Mountain in Highlands, NC

This image was featured on the cover of Outdoor Photographer Magazine in May 2012. We were treated to a spectacular sunrise during our trip to Highlands, NC in the Spring of 2011 for the Highlands Village Square art festival. "Rhodes Big View" area offers a great view of Whitesides Mountain and the valley below at any given time, but it is especially striking at sunrise. The dynamic sky over the fog filled valleys of the Nantahala National Forest in the golden light of early morning really made this scene special in my opinion. Hope you enjoy it, comments welcome! ;-)
