    I have spent many an evening at this overlook and each time the view was different. I often wish I could capture an entire years worth of photos,one a day from this spot. Thanks for getting this one.

  • Thanks Chuck, You’re right about that overlook. Everyday always seems to have been painted a little differently than the day before. The hard ones to catch are the winter scenes since TDOT closes the road during ice or snow.
