A view of Grandfather Mountain

MissyAnn, my get-pushed partner, wanted to see a landscape. I found this more challenging than expected. It's difficult to get a decent landscape around here. Power lines, tall trees, busy roads all conspired to have me riding around the county this week looking for something nice.
@missyann Here, finally, is a landscape. This actually is from a vantage point not too far from the house. I don't know why I didn't think of it before. You can see pastures that are part of state land. No animals are using them right now. The you have a little bit of town. You can see how the trees are grown up and blocking possible vistas. The final layers are the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can see the silhouette of the old man with his beard (if you're like me you'll have to use your imagination a bit) which is Grandfather Mountain. This is approximately 40 miles from here. Thank you for your challenge. You really made me work for it!

This is a lovely scene, and you have met the challenge very well. But I know what you mean that landscape is challenging. I feel the same.
