Sunsrise at Blackrock Summit, Shenandoah National Park

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.
