The boring blue is what we have had all week too in So Cal.
Your golden afternoon sun is very pretty however!
Thanks for the warm autumn sky!

I'd like to have your lovely blue sky as it has been really gloomy over here lately :-)

Could there be a more perfect name for a place that looks like this? I'd love to pack a lunch and sit right by that tree while I enjoy that view.

Well, boring blue is surely not what we're having in Seattle, more like really boring gray! This is a gorgeous shot! Thanks for sharing!

Have a great weekend! Could I maybe send you some of our rain/gray from Seattle???

A beautiful picture with lovely light. It certainly looks like a pleasant hill. We live in a little township called Mt.Pleasant, our mountain is also very pleasant though not much higher than your hill.

Perfection! And I'll take your boring blue any day; thanks for sharing the beauty. Happy weekend too!

Nice picture! You captured the warm, Fall light very well. I like the contrast with the wedge of shadow. I couldn't find a cloud anywhere either... Maybe we'll get some rain on Friday!

joo said...

What a perfect name!
The blue may be boring but it sure is pretty and its better than boring gray!

Valerie said...

Well since we are used to the constant grey most of the winter, I would take boring blue anytime - at least the sun is visible where you are with a blue sky!

Me wants that boring blue. Skies over my head have been mid-gray all week. And the rain.. :/

I like your composition and cropping. That light from setting sun is so warm (in color) and so soft. Me likey!

Vistas are exotic to me. It adds to it, for me at least.

We're certainly spoiled in California where the skies remain blue so often. Your scenic sky view is anything BUT boring ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Nice photo! Makes me feel nice and warm seeing all that sunlit landscape. I'm glad you included the tree; it has real character!

I love those boring blue skies. The rest of the scenery is beautiful as well.
