Aerial Great Smoky Mountains

I shot this image early in the morning at about 6am. Fog was in the valley and the sun was just beginning to light the sky with warm tones. The best light for outdoor photography is morning or evening or first light and last light. The sun being lower in the sky creates warm tones along with light that produces more color saturation. The light is much more exciting because we only see it for a few fleeting moments a day. For best results when shooting outside would be to get to your destination before sun rise then shoot until sun get high in the sky take a good nap then get up and shoot 1 hour before the sun sets. The times will vary with the time of year so find out what time sun set and sun rise is and plan it that way.
