Sierra Skies

Clear blue skies again this week in our Sierra hide-a-way
This rugged tree stands above the Lundy Canyon trail. If you don't look up you'll miss it.
Well, maybe the skies weren't completely clear. There must have been a fire somewhere to leave this haze in the east. I rather like the effect it gives, though.

Hi Martha,
Can you believe that it's already mid-July? Your Sierra sky in the first photo looks a lot like mine here in CO this week. I do like the hazy effect on the mountains in the second shot. Enjoy summer!

Beautiful shots...I especially the one with the layers of mountains off in the distance.

I just got back from the eastern Sierras...so pristine and gorgeous. The skies were brilliant blue.

That rugged tree looks great against the blue sky. In the second one, the blue hills make it look like the view goes on forever.

Marvelous blue sky views here and in your previous posts too. I've not been to the Sierras for a while but looking at your photos brings back wonderful memories of past visits and makes me want to look through old photo albums ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I loved the old gnarled junipers we saw in the high Sierras.

Beautiful photo of the tree against the blue. And I like that high pressure haze effect, too. Makes the mountains look mystical.
