This is a view from the top of Mount Washington, very close to the summit. I took this picture facing south direction. I was very lucky the day I climbed the Mount Washington to have this clear and distance view.
Mount Washington is the highest peak in the president range of White Mountains in New Hampshire. It is the highest peak in Northeastern America. The mountain peaks in the range are named after America's past presidents. The names for those I know are shown in WS.

L like this kind of landscape with several plans of mountains. It makes a good effect with different range of blue.
Well done Wes

Hey Wes. A beautiful landscape of the ridges so typical of the Appalachians. These seem much more rugged than what I'm used to seeing though. This shot is so peaceful. Nice one Wes!

Very well captured Wes.
Nice layers of mountains slowly disappearing in the horizon covered with a delicate mist.
The WS with the names of the mountains written in the picture was a very good idea.
Well done .

Superbe photo avec cette sucession de plan pratiquement a l'infini. J'adore la lumière, la teinte bleu est superbe.
Très belle image

Hi Wes, you had a spectacular view from the peak with all those mountains gradually fading into the distance. Nice dof and a very nice range of blue tones. Well done!
Galeota (10338) 2005-09-25 2:46
Hello Wes, so many successive layers that draw our eye into the frame. This a a beautiful profiled landscape. All those curves, almost silhuettes, are very aesthetic.
oochappan (22043) 2005-09-25 2:48
What a fine gradiant leveleing yo found here in the mist with a blue dominating colortone, a fine tableau.
ChrisJ (86876) 2005-09-25 3:33
Superb example of aerial perspective, with graduating tones. Good work!

A beautiful, tranquil photo; they should be called the Blue Mountains. I love the different shades as the eye travels to the background; it gives the photo a 3D look.
Amirsun (2122) 2005-09-25 5:45
What a nice layers made by mountains! Well seen and well composed. Tanks for posting.
jbweasle (9373) 2005-09-25 8:30
A beautiful view, Wes. This is a classic layering effect with the hills gradually getting lighter and more blue as they recede into the distance. The thin line of clouds across the top of the frame are an interesting touch. Maybe the picture lacks a focal point, but still it is a very attractive shot.
Steft (5975) 2005-09-25 8:35
Beautiful photo. I like the soft shape of the layers very much. It's a bit like a dream!
Galmeida (12559) 2005-09-25 12:21

Fine enquadrement, quality picture, enquadrement and you.
Very good work. Congratulations in a simple but you Saw.
Best to you.

A beautiful and soothing view, Wes. Very simple with just a view of hte layered hillsides, but the special lighting you had with the hazy conditions - making the undulating shapes gradually vanish towards the back - makes this one sing. The blueish tones are nice but I would imagine it could also be good in b&w.
Graal (88908) 2005-09-25 14:05
great mountains and the view. Unusual place - top Mt.Washington. Thanks for post. I like it.
alvaraalto (5473) 2005-09-25 15:52
I always admire this kind of "layered" pictures.
The fading of colors are very fascinating. Here we can have the same effect in the polder with several rows of trees behind each others.
Great info together with the WS too. Good for our geographical knowledge.
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-09-25 16:56
A great shot with strong atmosphere,I like the different layers of the mountains vanishing into the depth.Nice,almost monochrome colors in this image.
Steve_T (421) 2005-09-25 17:05
Nice perspective Wes! Very nice view. Nice depth too. Good work my friend. Kjeld
AmiBe (6042) 2005-09-25 18:15
mmmm, good mood here.
I like the different layers.
Nice blue tones, well done !
PLD_images (7149) 2005-09-25 18:19
Cool WS Wes, I find it's a good idea.
This is a kind of photo that I appreciate because I find that there is a lot of beauty in simplicity. I also enjoy the how the colors degrade ad you go in the image.
Must have been a breath taking place!
Have a good week.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-09-25 21:28
very nice view of the mountains, the differnt contrasting shades here are really nice, well composed too, well done
PJE (20756) 2005-09-25 23:53
Well Wes I see you sure caught a nice photo in this posting. I know even though its a clear day the air up there does not offer as much clarity as you wish for. But on the other hand you have a wonderful layered mountain ridges with various shades of blue! Nice work Wes!
kclai (2267) 2005-09-26 2:18
Wonderful perspective. The many "layers" of the mountain created the different toning are well captured with good clarity and sharpness.
Well done, Wes.
Tue (25798) 2005-09-26 8:56
This view is really gorgeous! The shapes of the mountains are wonderful and I like the blueish colours above them. This is really a great picture, very well done!
carper (96) 2005-09-26 10:47
this is good Wes,
the composition is great, the lines are good, I think on a piece of art like this one, you must have a frame. Yes I miss the frame here. Perfect job,
jhm (122458) 2005-09-26 12:52
I see a old tradition painting here, the a lot movements in the mountains together with the gray/blue colours tints make your picture very attractive.
Very well done Wes.
Greetings from Belgium.
elihesamian (26127) 2005-09-26 16:24

Best to You,
john_c (24662) 2005-09-26 22:11
A well composed shot of this amazing sea of mountains from atop Mt. Washington. I like the misty ambience here and the dark foreground rocks and ridges which lead the eye into the frame. Well captured with excellent framing and cropping.
maphoto (8082) 2005-09-26 22:58
Simple view but nice to see all these peaks Wes, nicely presented, thanks for sharing.
Gregtom (7161) 2005-09-27 5:08
Your photo has really fantastic perspective. I like the vanishing mountains in the foggy atmosphere. Picture seems to be monochromatic, although it isn't. Nice work!
sarju (5324) 2005-09-27 23:00
I like this layered mountain ranges a lot ... wow there seems like an endless of these ranges ... I am impressed
thanks for sharing ... cheers
premels (2400) 2005-10-01 8:36
Hi Wes, Nice soft color(s) and an impressive feeling that there is no end to these hills.
mumek (20190) 2005-10-02 18:38
Good evening Wes!

Didi (48930) 2005-10-05 13:31
J'apprécie beaucoup ce contraste graduel
Cela ressemble aux vagues d'un océan déchaîné.
I appreciate much this gradual contrast That resembles the waves of an rough ocean. Fantastic.
jrj (34841) 2005-10-09 5:48
I like this one. Good compo and use of light to present all the layers of hills and mountains. Giving a top depth and perspective. Nice work.
zig (2456) 2005-11-17 7:47
This shot reminds me of my home town that is located deep in the mountains in Hiroshima. All what I could see there was mountains. Anyway back to the photo, lovely view over the montains, surely it makes me feel that human is too small for the earth...
