This pleasant scene was captured one evening this past summer along the Blue Ridge Parkway in western North Carolina. Haze oftens robs us of interesting twilights during the summer months, but not in this case. Clouds at all levels on this photo result in both subtle shades and intense color resonance, especially the ochers. There's even a crepuscular ray or two cast by distant clouds near or beyond the horizon.
