Pure Magic!
While I was scrolling down, the top of the image ducked under the toolbar, and just as the sun flare (which adds a lot to this btw) got out of view, the wide aspect panoramic look of this image really looks great! Have you post-processed another version of this in a panoramic-aspect crop?

The morning fog is beautiful with the rays of sun!

Very cool, magical. This would have been even more powerful without the sun flare at the top left. Nevertheless, a very good shot.

Love the layers of hills here, and the fog adds lots of interest. Like the serenity. 7

First 10 of the day. There are some really good ones in this challenge. Some may not like the flare in the top, but I do.

Breathtaking.....

7: I like the way the clouds flow into the hills and the composition is good. The sun at the top is a distraction to the image but I think you need it as without it the whole feel may be a bit bland

I love the Nancy Griffith song by the same title. Wonderful silhouettes and the various blue tones make it a true study in the azure hues.
