Early morning fog rising (2)

As the sun rose and began to touch the lower regions and valleys, it gave a soft backglow to a bank of trees.  The soft morning fog of the Smokies forming added a mystical mood to the scene unfolding.  It was yet another reminder to me of the ever changing grandeur of our natural world and that this scene will be different seconds from now.  But I couldn’t help but focus on a particular tree.
