Finally, Mountainscapes gets some American Mountains!

Not that I don't enjoy Euro or Middle Eastern ranges; they're nice in their own way. The thing is that American mountains, specifically the Appalachians, feel really different from others. Not better or worse, just a different flavor. American and European, Chocolate and Vanilla :P

This actually reminds me of the Lorax. There's trees everywhere just like it. >w< (Except for them not being fluffy.)

Hey I never thought of that but yes, it sort of is reminiscent of the lorax! There actually is a grove of lorax in the next valley over, of course.

I want a house there.

Thanks for commenting. I ask that you not buy property here because second home and retiree developments are popping up in the area and causing all sorts of environmental damage and degradation. Everyone wants a home up there. It's often not a responsible thing to do. Please lets leave the area as it is and enjoy it from afar, as I do. Thank you!

I'd have a hard time having a home there since 1) not a US citizen; 2) want to stay as far away as possible from the US and 3) would have to buy the entire area to drive out all the losers ruining the place to keep it pristine. :D

This seems VERY familiar. I live near the northern panhandle of West Virginia. Is this anywhere in that northern area? Even though, the sloping hills all pretty much look the same, I think I may have been here before.

What an interesting and captivating combination of hues and tones. There's a nice balance of contrasting colors, while at the same time... the misty quality/fog almost blends each hue in the palette together to make for a harmonious mixture of values. It looks fairly plain at first glance, but upon further inspection... the composition really is quite interesting. Nice photograph! :)
