Killer light conditions

First snow in the Smokies
Nikon D300s, Nikkor 24-120, f4

It wasn't as cold as it looks like in this photo from October 20, 2011. It was the day when we went over the mountain ridge to the north side of the Great Smoky Mountains. The first snow of the season had painted the trees white in the upper range of the mountains. It was a wonderful mix between fall colors and the white of the snow covered trees. Fast moving clouds made for real killer light conditions and constantly changing scenery. This photo was made at Newfound Gap at the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. More to come...
