This shot was taken along the Blue Ridge Parkway, near mile post 238 elevation 3400 feet, in Alleghany County, North Carolina. A formidable storm cloud exhaled a radiant breath of diaphanous silver light. The Laurel and I were both caught off guard.
Fourteen years later, actually 10 days ago, I splashed by this spot in a driving rain wet brakes shuddering with scornful displeasure. Did not stop for another shot.
