Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

One thing I don't ever get tired of and that is seeing the south view of the mountains! The one thing that Upstate New York has going for it and that is the mountains! I have seen the mountains in different states and they are just as beautiful or even more so, but with this view from my barn is even better because I get to look at them every morning and evening when I do my chores or any work outside! When I lived in Illinois, I loved seeing the fields upon fields of corn and soybeans! Now that was lovely also but in a different way, the hubby liked it but he didn't love it because he grew up with the mountains and flat ground was not one of his favorites, but after 11 years of living in the state he grew to love the dirt work when it came to planting season and I guess it does hold its own beauty!

I know that I love to visit all your blogs because I get to see a different side of beauty every day in different parts of the world that I have not been able to visit yet and that is very exciting! So, thanks for sharing your world! Have a great day and enjoy the scenery out of your back or front or side yards ;)

I can see why you like your view - it looks so peaceful!

I agree, that is one beautiful view! I have always loved mountain views and have thought living in North Georgia mountains would be nice. But, I also love the Tybee Island, Ga view of the ocean.
Well, alright. I like the view from my back porch, too. Green pasture, trees, goats, cows, guineas, chickens, and Jack.
So many views to enjoy. Thanks for sharing yours!
Have a great day.

Lovely views, indeed.

Isn't it interesting what each person's landscape preferences are and what some consider beautiful, while others consider the same thing unattractive?

When we lived in South Carolina, folks were very proud of their trees....wall to wall trees. I believe folks in the PNW feel very similar, too. There were so many trees where we lived in SC that I could only see the sky in little jigsaw-puzzle-like shapes through the leaves of the trees.
It was stifling for me. I felt suffocated not being able to see the sky or any far off views.

I love to see the sky, whether that is at the beach with the sounds of waves crashing and seagulls squawking for music. Or in the rolling mountains (reminiscent of the ocean waves) with the sounds of song birds serenading me.

Don't you just love all the diversity of this planet? There is something for everyone to enjoy. :)

That is a real pretty! But I am partial to the prairies now that I have lived here so long. But saying that I do enjoy when heading west to see the mountains there.

I love your views also! Where you live is like the mountains that surround us...where we go to visit when the work winds down.

There are places I used to think of as ugly, and wonder how anyone could live there, but as I grow older I see that there is beauty everywhere, and that every part of the Earth was Created by the Master Artist.

Hi Lisa, I agree with Shirley, there is beauty every where. That's why I love all the blogs. (and your all just nice)
I wont to see every state of the US. I love flying in to Sacramento airport, the valley with all it's farmland looks like a patchwork quilt. It is wonderful. Thank You for all your encouragement.....Sam

Mountains are beautiful. I was in awe of the beauty when I visited Washington. But there is something about the sun coming up over a wheat field too. You're right, there's something pretty about just about everywhere!

I have been to quite a few places, including Texas, Florida, Colorado, Arizona, Utah and some places in between going to these places. But I would love to go to the northern western states as Montana, the Dakota's, etc. We shall see. Thanks for all your comments!

That is what I agree with, I think every state has its beauty, that is for sure. I grew up in Illinois and I miss the corn fields! I love the wide open spaces also! I am really not that picky when it comes to the scenery, but I don't think I would like to see the desert very much ;)

very pretty spot..I think just appreciating where you are is a good thing..although Minnesota is much better in the summer than the winter:)

I love the mountain views as well. They are never the same and the light on them is constantly changing as well. There's so much beauty all over our world. Thanks for sharing yours.
