Rain Clouds in The Cove - jimdenhamphoto

One of my favorite images from our NXNW trip to The Smokies was a long exposure of this tree (here), but this standard exposure of the same scene with a slightly different composition yields a much different feel and mood. We had been in and out of rain the entire morning but found a break while traveling along Hyatt Lane. During the break, the clouds were full of texture, movement and contrast, which make for great photos regardless of the exposure chosen!
