For something completely different, I present to you Decembers photo of the month. I have wanted to capture this image for a long time and with large sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway closed due to a pre Thanksgiving ice storm I figured it was the perfect opportunity. The photo was taking about 1 hour after sunset and is a 25 second exposure. The image was captured over Roanoke Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains from Roanoke Star Overlook, located off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile post 120 (Mill Mountain Park).
