Brilliant Sunrise over Great Smoky Mountains

An incredible sunrise over Great Smoky Mountains National Park sends reds, oranges, and yellows arcing across the entire sky, from east to west. The perfect conditions for sunrise color came together on this particular morning, as an incoming storm generated thin mid-to-high elevation clouds above the mountains. Furthermore, the deep reds remaining on any high-elevation oak trees only accentuated the display!
