Driving along Skyline Drive in Virginia was absolutely gorgeous this past October. A storm was brewing causing the wind to blow and the sun to pop in and out of the clouds. The fog was rolling through the valleys. It was a perfect autumn day, even though it made photographing a challenge. There are many pull offs along the Drive and I took advantage of most of them, driving in to take a peek at the scenery. At this particular stop I found my lone tree. The sun popped out for a moment to illuminate the branches with a warm cast of the late afternoon.
It wasn't until about a month later I processed this image. I had just recently discovered the app Iris and was practicing my skills. I found it to be extremely powerful. It is still a favorite app of mine that I use often.
