Great shots for skywatch! Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize__ blue sky, white clouds, and our own two eyes. All is a miracle!!! Happy skywatching! Hope too see you @ corner too...

I've never seen them in person, but I guess that's why they call them the Blue Ridge Mountains...

I had to come over to have a look what sort of goodies you are displaying for SWF.
It's blue and gold and I think the photos are outstanding.

Hi Denise

Just lovely pictures of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Worthy of displaying on a wall, to remind one of their qualities, who is unable to see them as often as they would wish to.
Thanks for visiting and you kind comments.
