Scenic Sunday #114: The Mountains

The mountains of western North Carolina, Burnsville, North Carolina. July 11, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

Although Betsy and I go to the beach each year, we really like the mountains.  I guess that’s a good thing since we live in eastern Tennessee.  The mountains in the picture above are in western North Carolina.  This picture was taken in July near Burnsville, North Carolina.

    I like that picture. The mountains farther away almost look like shadows.

    That’s a pretty view George. I had not thought about it in years, but Burnsville was home to my mom’s best friend! Hope you have a great week.

    Beautiful! And so different from Western mountain vistas. Have you been out West to see the mountains?

  6. Karin Says:

    As far as the eye can see – beauty!! These mountains are so different from our Rockies and its foothills. “I lift my eyes to the hills.” Thanks!

    I like the several layers of the blue mountains you can see there. It almost looks like MY mountains!!

  8. Carletta Says:

    Your depth of field makes it look like the mountains go on and on and on!
    I like the hint of purple.

    I think we are so lucky to live in the States…we have so many different types of land/terrain and we are free to enjoy it all.

    This is such a beautiful shot.

    When I am at the ocean I never can get enough of the ocean. When I am in the mountains I never can get enough of the mountains. I think I need to live some place where I can look at the ocean in one direction and the mountains in another direction 🙂
