One note on this last picture: as you can see in the two pictures above, the sky was a mix of clouds and clear on this night. I left the top of Newfound Gap and headed down to this overlook with the idea of getting a fisheye view of this curve, with headlights or taillights and the starry night sky. Unfortunately, by the time I moved down to this spot, the sky had completely clouded over and it burned me that I missed the chance to make the photograph I had envisioned.

But I got it in August, so look for that post soon.
