Here's another image from my trip to Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. This particular image is during Sunrise at Blackrock Summit. Of the many summits I've visited in Shenandoah, I consider Blackrock to be the most photogenic. I love the interesting foregrounds as well as the layered, receding, blue ridge mountains. The sky this morning was rather bland, with no clouds in sight. To overcome this, I used to rising sun as a point of interest in the sky. Many photographers find "sun stars" too cliche, but I find them beautiful. Heck, if people without cameras enjoy watching the actual sun rising above the earth, it can't be a bad thing to include in photographs.
