Canyonlands Vista

The vast distances involved in a photo such as this one always seem to have a blue cast. The reason is very simple. The light coming from the distant mountains is colored by the same process that makes the sky blue. You normally do not see the blue cast because the amount of air between you and any given object is relatively small. It is only when these distances are visible that the colors shift towards blue. This is Canyonlands National Park in southern Utah.
