This was taken yesterday in Cades Cove while shooting with Breland, Gayle and Dick. The valley floor was covered in fog and the early morning sunlight poured over the eastern mountains to bathe the the day in some of the prettiest golden light I've seen. It was one of those days when you were glad the 5:30 alarm got you out of bed.
