    I like when the “blue ridge mountains” appear like their name suggests. In the receding sunset, they often look like almost like ocean waves to me.

    Sweet - I like the almost endless ridge lines fading off to the horizon. Is that a cloud bank to the west or just the top of the haze layers just below the sky?

    No solid cloud bank in that direction (South, more or less)--only clouds in that direction were wispy ones as seen. Other directions had more clouds. FYI, these were all taken with a telephoto zoom I am using a fair amount due to being asked to review the lens. These are all at 100mm focal length I think. Couple more for comparison each to the right of the previous image : [​IMG] [​IMG]
