Above the clouds


I shot this photograph from the observation tower atop of Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. While it’s not a world-class peak at a mere 6600 feet, Clingman’s Dome does afford some spectacular views of the surrounding mountain ridges and gets you above the clouds.

Some thoughts:
The sun always shines above the clouds.
It takes some effort to get above the clouds.
It’s usually worth that effort.
