Have you ever seen clouds race across a bright moon on a cold and windy January night? I did a few years ago walking into work here at WRAL. It was a spectacular sight but I didn't have my camera and tripod with me. Opportunity lost.
Fortunately I did have my pocket camera recently while hiking the Bluff Mountain Trail off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Alleghany County. The sky was a playground of clouds and light. The scene inspired me to come up with a slideshow and Winter Skies Photo Contest.
Please check out the contest and slideshow in the Don't Miss It section of wral.com.
We have some terrific entries so far. Please keep these marvelous works of art coming. The contest doesn't end until February starts so you have plenty of time to wow us.
Also, I would like to open up the following discussion: what was your most interesting experience as a photographer? Was there one time you really wished you had a camera and didn't? Please weigh in.
