Blue Tennessee Sky



These are a couple of my scans of some of my old 35mm slides.

These were taken in late November of 1983 in the mountains of east Tennessee near the little town of Rockwood.

I've always liked them because of how blue the sky was. A fresh cold front had just moved through and carried all of the haze away and left the sky very clear and blue.

Hi John, I came by from Chad O's blog,Very nice work you have here. Great colors.

I like your sandhill cranes too. I have never had a chance to capture one of these without houses or roads in the background. Maybe I'll get lucky the next time I'm in FL.

Nice capture! Skies that clear don't happen often where I live - usually only in the Fall.
