20 Minute Cliff, Day 25 of Challenge

20 Minute Cliff is on the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile post 19. The rock face below the overlook serves the people of White Rock as a way of measuring time. During the months of June and July the sun drops behind the mountains 20 minutes after sunlight hits the rock, enabling locals to tell time by the sun.
This is from a summer photograph and is a commission for Becca & Karl, 16" x 40" oil on canvas.
