Sunrise at Grand View, WV

Given the eminent shutdown of G+ I'm not sure how many more posts I'll make. I've only visited the New River gorge area of West Virginia once and I can't wait to get back.

Have a great week!

Falls Run

I took a couple of days off work last week to travel to the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia. I was there partly for the unveiling of a couple of my photos being displayed in the Cortland Acres care facility as well as for taking photos of the local beauty. I ended up shooting this waterfall twice while I was there. The first day I visited was after a day of ran and the water flow was so high it wasn't possible to shoot from the location this photo was taken from. I came back the following day and was able to get this shot. Have a great weekend!

Appalachian Layers

Looking north-east from Bear Rocks. I love all the layers and golden light. This was taken a bit after sunrise. I used Aurora HDR 2018 to process the 5 bracketed shots and found a preset that pulled out the golden light like I wanted.

This view reminded me of images I've seen of the Palouse in Washington State.

Red top

I'm not sure what kind of mushroom this is... but I found it in the Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge off of Freeland Rd. I ran out of waterfalls to shoot because the streams are too full of water... so went searching for other subjects. This one did very nicely... and I'm glad I kept my macro lens in my bag on this adventure.

Happy "almost the weekend" to all :)

Big Run Falls

I made my first solo excursion to Big Run Falls in the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia. The forest road to get to this waterfall gets a little dicy for the last 0.7 miles or so and I was very thankful to be driving an FJ Cruiser:) This is also the highest flow I've personally experienced at this waterfall. Unfortunately, the water was high enough (and I'd left my "Stream Trekkers" in the car) that I didn't dare venture how for a better angle. However, I like the little swirl in the bottom right corner. I hope everyone is doing well. I know I'm not posting near as frequently as I used to and that is mostly due to additional work stress. I still love getting out and taking photos... it just happens less frequently. Have a great Thursday!

Rain on the Horizon

It's been a good while since I hiked up to Bears Den overlook on the #AppalachianTrail. I wasn't sure what I would find and this evening it was clouds and rain. The rain stayed stuck in that spot for quite some time (must have been a slow moving cell) so I was able to shoot for a while before hiking back to my car and I never got wet:) For those celebrating Labor Day in the US, have a wonderful day and for everyone else, happy Monday!

Blackwater Falls

I took this back in June during a quick trip to the Blackwater Falls State Park area of West Virginia (near Davis, WV). It was quite the scramble to get down to the river level and then I had to work through some major rhododendron thicks to get to this vantage point. I'm still playing with the edit on this image. It was shot in raw and the water right in the middle I can't get quite right. But figured I'd go ahead an post it anyway as I like the comp and shutter speed of the shot:) Have a wonderful week!

Sound side sunset

Our beach house recommended a walkway in Monterey Shores as the best place to watch the sunset. While the view from the end of the boardwalk was wide open, I liked this view with the sea grass separating the sky from the reflection.

Waves and Sun

I spent some time this morning playing with On1 Photo Raw 2018.5. There is still so much I need to learn about the tools I have so that I can know what effect will produce the result I want. Many times I’m not sure I even know what result I want:)

Have a great weekend!

Beachy Pastels

Tried some long exposures during blue hour. No clouds to provide streaks in the sky so ended up with the pastels of morning:)
