Skywatch Friday: Heading into the Blue Ridge Mountains

Photobucket

Last week I showed you the sun setting behind the mountains. This week I thought I'd show you the Blue Ridge mountains I shot, shortly before sunset while my daughter drove.

I found it interesting how the clouds looked so blue after we got closer to the mountains. It's almost hard to tell where the mountain ends and the cloud begins.

Oh I find that riding shotgun is the best way to skywatch. Pretty nice shots Carver.

Those blue ridge mountains under the cloud are marvelous. Fantastic shots.

Oh, I agree with Photo Cache as far as riding shotgun! I did a lot of that last week when my kids were here! These are magnificent shots, Carver, as always. So much beauty, so little time -- to see/catch it all!

Have a great weekend!

Love the atmospheric perspective on the successive mountain ridges.

Sandi McBride said...

What a hard choice it is to decide which I love most, The Blue Ridge or the Great Smokey's...shall I just say it's a tie?

Louise said...

These are gorgeous. I think my favorite mountain pictures are when you can see the layers like this. I have wanted to duplicate such scenes in paper, but have never sat down to do it.

Jan K. said...

I really like all the changing blue colors. The first one is my favorite.
Enjoy your weekend!

Gaelyn said...

No wonder they're called the Blue Ridge Mts. You've captured them excellently. Was that smoke I saw towards the left foreground?

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

That looks a beautiful view. They do have a really blue tinge on the last shot. :-)
