Blue Ridge Mountains
If you've ever wondered why they're called the "Blue Ridge Mountains," here's a good answer:
I took this photo a few weeks ago in Shenandoah National Park. The bluish color comes from the trees, which release isoprene into the atmosphere, thereby contributing to the characteristic haze on the mountains and their distinctive color (Wikipedia, Blue Ridge Mountains (as of Sept. 10, 2012)).
