Morning in the Mountains

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Early last month Betsy and I spent a couple of days in the mountains of western North Carolina.  We were able to get up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway fairly early one morning, and although the sky was bright and blue, there were clouds in the valley below.  We enjoyed the scene above from the Grassy Ridge Mine Overlook.

The picture on which this painting was based is shown below.
