This is a view of the Catskills in New York State. I caught this glimpse as I made my way down Meads Mountain Road after visiting the Tibetan Buddhist monastery Karma Triyana Dharmachakra at the very top.

  37. such an interesting amazing shot! Film makers would love to be able to have footage of that kind of blue for a movie!

    once again your talent amazes one and all!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fantastic colours in the mountains. Sandi, we get blue mountains like that, perhaps not so intensiv; it is caused by the Eucalyptus trees, the evaporation of the oil in the leaves.
    Thank you for SWF. Take care T.

  39. very nice SWF Sandy...

    ReplyDelete
  40. what a beautiful photo, it does look real blue

    ReplyDelete
  41. Catskills sounds like a place where almost everything is possible. Opus 40, tibetan monastery, Mercury Rev, jokes...intriguing.

  43. Lovely blue in them thar hills!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That blue hue looks almost like an add-in or touch-up - spectacular contrast in the middle of the hills.

    Great skywatch.

  47. blue mountains - cool. i get good karma from this one! ;-]

  48. The bkue hue off those mountains is surreal. I'm glad you get those powerlines in, not beacuse they're pretty, just beacuse it puts the shot in such a natural context. The mountains are even more beautiful for it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You're excellent at getting just the right shades.
