How I Got This Shot: Sun was just beginning to crest the mountains behind me, bathing Grandfather Mountain in pink light. Fog had made its way up the ridge line, enhancing the effect. The even lighting on the nearby trees made the colors pop. I used the rocks below to give a since of where I was standing.
