While driving through a rainy day in the Smoky Mountains we came across this stretch of road where the sun was just barely starting to break through the forest canopy.  This light was gone within 3 minutes, so it was imperative for me to get it as soon as possible once I saw it...which I also recommend for all photographers, seize upon opportunities!

Camera settings: Nikon D800, 1/60 sec at f/4.0, 16mm at ISO 320, flash did not fire.  Taken at 4:09pm.
