    Wow, Craig. What beautiful light. Love the layers and the rhythms between the mountains and clouds. Beautiful!

    I too love looking at all the layers. The two “humps” in the middle are definitely land forms. But then there’s another hump beyond them to the left that’s probably another land form, but due to the clouds and the fog and other atmospheric conditions, it’s hard to tell for sure.

    As much as I do like B&W, for me, images of The Smokies just ought to be in color, lol. I can still make out all the different layers in color.

    Thank you Steve…. traveled with Jill to the Smokies…..first trip in a long, long time to a place that used to be a regular hangout for me….we hiked up to the observation tower on Clingman’s Dome in a heavy fog. Just after sunset the fog broke and this was the view…..Craig

    Not much I can add that others haven’t already said except to add another big WOW. The lighting is stunning and forms and shapes of the cloud layers are very calming. I can feel the thrill of the climb and the surprise at the top.

    I often find B&W landscapes to be aesthetically pleasing. This image has a certain calmness about it which is set by the fog hanging in the valleys between the hill tops in spite of what appears to be storm clouds above. Great light, rhythm and texture.
