17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Moody Mountain Magic

This photo was taken on a recent trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. I was driving south on the Parkway with my sister in law on a gloomy day and when we came around the bend I saw the sun peeking out through the clouds and it created such an intense feeling in me that I had to stop and capture the magic.
