Having a free hour one afternoon this week, I felt compelled to look for a place where I might capture a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I live in the Roanoke Valley which is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Nearly every main road seems to have surrounding views of these mountains. My eyes seem trained to block out the buildings and power lines that interfere with a pristine view and focus on the gorgeous blue of the mountains against the sky.
Having time and distance restraints, I settled on a nearby location and scouted the area for open views. The sun was shining directly in my eyes as I took this photo, making it difficult to frame the view using my i phone 5s.
I did need to crop the photo to eliminate a sun glare. I also slightly tweaked the coolness and clarity of the picture using the camera + app.
I hope this photo of the beautiful mountains, showcased against the partly clouded afternoon sky, will give you all an idea of the landscape of my city.
