SkyWatch Friday: Morning in the Mountains

Morning sky at Hazel Mountain Overlook, Skyline Drive, Virginia. November 23, 2011.

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 would have trouble deciding which is more magnificent — mountains or the sky.  When they are together I am often struck by the sheer wonder of the scene before me.  Often I can only think “The Heavens Are Telling the Glory of God”.

Such was the case early one November morning last year when we stopped at Hazel Mountain Overlook on the Skyline Drive in Virginia to take in the sight above.

    Hazel mountain Overlook, is this one by me, George?? The tree does look familiar…this is just framed beautifully, I think the tree on the side adds so much to it, just the right thing. I’ve been missing a good thing if this is here, I will have to go and try to copy your shot!!!

    This is a great shot of the morning sky when enlarged. Why don’t you post them a bigger size, they look better and make it easier viewing? I’m being a bit rude, sorry.
