Lifting my eyes to the hills

View to the foothills of the Apennines

View to the foothills of the Apennines

The blue in the distance is our view of the foothills of the Apennines.

Mountains rather than hills, though no-one seems to be quite sure when one becomes the other.

In Wales the criterion is land use and appearance rather than strict height, which seems eminently sensible to me.

By that token these are mountains.
