Sunrise clouds over the Wilderness Battlefield, Orange Plank Road, Spotsylvania, VA

Early morning sunrise – The Wilderness Battlefield
Orange Plank Road, Spotsylvania, VA

June clouds illuminated at sunrise, northbound on the Orange Plank Road at the south end of the Civil War’s Wilderness Battlefield.  I almost always keep a camera in the car and eagerly try to catch and share those rare colorful clouds at sunrise, sunset, thunderstorms, contrails, fogging, or lifting rain. Sometimes the shot is out of the sunroof (sort of like the Google Street-view Car), occasionally out the driver’s window, and sometimes I’ll actually stop the car.

I pulled over to take this image (driver-side mirror at the bottom), even though the traffic was light. The sky paled quickly as the southbound car passed and I got back on the road and crested the upcoming hill.
