Chimney Top o' the Morning
This photo of Chimney-Top and Rock Mountains is taken from High Hampton Inn, in Cashiers, North Carolina. Sunrises in these mountains come in waves. Pictured here is the first wave, when clouds turn pink while the sky remains dark blue. This is when the sun rises over the distant horizon. It then becomes dull again for a little while, followed in turn by the golden rays and mist when the sun first crests over the mountains.
