“The gray-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
checkering the eastern clouds with streaks of light…”
This photograph was taken at dawn in the Pisgah National Forest on the banks of the Davidson River. The sun through the dappled leaves left streaks in the dewy air, which I attempted to capture in this photograph. The shadow-play made the exposure a bit tricky, but overall I have always enjoyed this photograph and its even its color version. We are venturing back to the Pisgah in December, and I look forward to capturing even more scenes of the rivers and falls once there.
