The Smokys or the Blue Ridge…the Mounts Are Blue.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are noted for their bluish color when seen from a distance. Trees put the “blue” in Blue Ridge, from the isoprene released into the atmosphere,[2] thereby contributing to the characteristic haze on the mountains and their distinctive color.

  1. Excellent information! I wondered how they got their name. I wish it was that warm here so I could be out riding.

  2. I am not sure how you were taking this and riding at the same time – nonetheless, it is beautiful.

  3. Carol, I’ve been taking photos with my cameras while riding for years. So I can just about gage where and what I’m gonna capture without having to get too involved in adjustments or sight. I make sure to set my camera for the shots I like to shoot, along with the type of light and distance I think I will be encountering on the section of ride. I also set the camera so that I can take several shots quickly. Not all the shots come out well…but with this new Nikon…whow….I’m getting some fantastic shots…I’m loving it. Oh and I’ve learned to shoot one handed…

  4. I need to start keeping my camera around my neck when I ride so I can get some better perspective pictures like this. Of course the scenery here isn’t as good as what you have up there in TN.
