Luftee Overlook

I recently enjoyed a sunrise from the Luftee Overlook, located along US-441 South, in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.

Only one mile beyond Clingman’s Dome, this overlook faces due east. I arrived 1/2 hour before sunrise and was greeted by several photographers with tripods, set up on the sidewalk and waiting.

If you’d be interested in a print, please visit my gallery at Fine Art America to select the print type which best suits your wishes – framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, acrylic or wood.

I’ve also made a variety of other products available with this photograph, in my shop at Redbubble – check it out.

Have a nice day!

      Yes, I’m glad that I arrived early. This pre-sunrise shot was the best, as the sunrise was obscured with cloud cover. Glad you like it, Allan!

      Glad you like it, Tiffany 🙂 I was fortunate to have heeded advice to arrive early. This beautiful scene was taken before sunrise, and the actual sunrise was completely drowned out by clouds.
