Skywatch Friday: A Mountain Sky

The late afternoon sky at Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. November 22, 2010.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

I really like the mountains, which is probably a good thing since I live in eastern Tennessee.  To me the mountains seem to be living — different in different seasons and even at different parts of the day.

The sky is a part of the mountain landscape.  Clouds and sky also change with the seasons and with the time of day.  The picture above was taken at Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway late in the afternoon on a November day.

    I love the mountains too and could not live anywhere else–by choice that is. I feel freer and breath happier in the mts. It just feels good.
