Travel photo of the day: Great Smoky Mountain sunset

Peter McIntosh captured this sunset image in the Great Smoky National Park last spring.

Peter McIntosh of Clayton, Ga., captured this incredible image while visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park last spring.

Clayton said he and “a zillion” other photographers were perched atop an observatory at Clingmans Dome – the park’s highest point – at sunset.

Sunset shots are popular from that vantage point. “It was like kickoff at the Super Bowl with all those flashes going off,” McIntosh said.

If his work looks familiar, it’s likely because you’ve seen it before – we featured McIntosh’s stunning photo of a lightning strike last week.

You can see more of his photography at his website.
