Artist's Description

Seen here is the picturesque Lake Hampton (part of High Hampton Inn, in Cashiers, North Carolina), just as the sun is rising over the ancient Appalachian Mountains. Since the mountains are so close to the lake, daybreak actually happens long before the sun is directly visible. It is this direct sunlight which evaporates the fog and mist. This lends a unique ambiance to these alpine lake scenes, with the mist lasting into the mid-morning colors — colors usually associated with a time of day when mist and dew are long gone.
