Good morning! We are having our first truly cold morning of the winter season here in Maggie Valley with a low of 16ºF (-9ºC). The cold, dry air clears away most of the haze. but enough haze remains to reflect the morning light in this brilliant orange. The orange cast of the sky and the purple tree covered ridges makes for an absolutely beautiful long range view. From a photography perspective, some puffy clouds in the sky would give us more interesting shapes and colors, but I never tire of the creative views that Mother Nature provides us every morning.
