This shot was taken at Elkmont Campground in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. We were in complete isolation since this was the 1st official day the park opened. It had snowed 5 inches the night before, and everyone was really struggling to stay warm. After 2 hours of trying to light a fire with wet wood, we were finally successful. While everyone kept nice and toasty by the fire, I stood away from the warmth... just to capture our accomplishment and the moment that I witnessed. With almost complete darkness, and only the sound of the passing streams, I managed to capture this shot... which turned out to be one of my favorites from the trip.

    Thank you both. The image is straight out of the camera, so nothing is edited. This really is how it looked that night.
