Sky Watch Friday: Jay Peak

When clicked, this photo will open, full size, in a new window.

This photo of Jay Peak was taken on Thursday morning at 10 AM at an elevation of 530 feet (161.5 meters). The wind chill at the time I took the photo: -31°F (-35°C); actual temperature -4°F (-20°C). Jay Peak is at 3858 feet (1176 meters). I can imagine what the wind chill was like up there. The cloud that you see there isn't. It is blowing snow. (Same text, different photo from yesterday's post on the main blog, meeyauw.)

  1. That is a beautiful sight! Just out of curiosity I googled to see the altitude of Georgia's highest mountain and it's 4784. I was surprised!
    There is a young lady hiker missing up there and I'm afraid she's been murdered. That is in the area where the Appalachian Trail begins.

  2. Okay. I've spent the day working on an origami presentation of which Mount Fuji is the centerpiece. This little hill blows that silly mount away. How beautiful.

  9. The mountains blend nicely with the clouds - it looks like clouds even if it's not.

  11. I was going to say that it's a beautiful picture, but it's too bad the haze blocks the mountain, - but then I read what you wrote below the picture - wow, that's amazing that it's all blowing snow! When I think of that it just makes the picture even better!

  12. Beautiful! I thought that was a cloud on the mountain, until I read your explanation. It really must have been cold up there!

  13. Amazing. I love the light touch of pink/lavender. And the contrast of the foreground to the mountain is beautiful. Your picture reminds me of a mountain I used to pass everyday to/from work in Alaska.
