Happy Saturday! Here are a couple of scenes from a recent daytrip to the North Carolina mountains (Ashe County).
You can see why they call them the Blue Ridge Mountains~
See a list of upcoming Saturday Photo Hunting themes on Gattina's website here.

Beautiful! I've always wanted to visit the area. There is an author I like that sets her novels in the Blue Mountains area. :)

Hi Annie, what a beautiful location. I love the perspectives on your shots. The cows lined up at the top of the hill and people walking along the dirt road and the tree branches in the foreground and mountain peaks in the background. Very cool! Yes, Blue Ridge Mountains is a very appropriate name.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful shots. My mother was from Boone and the NC mountains have always been a second home for me since my Grandmother lived in Boone. Happy Weekend!

I always enjoyed visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains when I lived in VA as a kid. These are lovely photos. I especially love the perspective of the first one, and how in the second you captured the "blue" of these lovely mountains, which look so soft and gentle compared to the rugged, jagged Rockies I'm used to seeing daily.

Beautiful shots both but love that first one in particular because of the cattle visible on the ridge. :)

Gloriously vivid photos. I love your angles too, really makes me want to walk right into the scene.
I am dreaming of blue skies today...all I can see out my window is blowing snow and grey cloud cover!
