First light at Dolly Sods Wilderness Area in West Virginia revealed heavy cloud cover that would, and did, obscure sunrise. Photographers packed up their gear and headed out, but I decided to stay to see what developed. I was delighted when clouds separated from the horizon revealing a golden sky, and sun rays peaked through the clouds. One ray pointed directly at water that filled a depression in the limestone - how glorious a moment!
