Thoroughfare Dawn

May 14, 2009

Here’s an old favorite from Shenandoah National Park last spring. I have yet to see any natural light show top this.

The Thoroughfare Gap overlook is a favorite spot of mine to photograph sunrise from in Shenandoah National Park. I had gone to the park that day to photograph White-tailed Deer fawns in Big Meadows, but when I saw this cloud formation with the clear patch of horizon on the east, I had to change my plan!

West Virginia Update #2!

October 10, 2008

Hey everyone,

I’m writing from the lobby of the Canaan Valley Lodge in Canaan Valley State Park, West Virginia. Free Wi-Fi sure is great. The foliage out here is nothing short of awesome. It looks like it’s going to hang on for another week or so, as long as there isn’t any heavy rain or severe wind. I better make the most of it!

I’ve had a good mix of soft and dramatic light, and I’m incredibly happy with my results so far. I’ll be incredibly busy over the next few days, so I’m going to schedule a few image posts. I’ve got no complaints so far.

Here’s a photograph from an overcast morning at Canaan Valley State Park. It doesn’t really show the vibrant reds that the maples are displaying around here right now, but regardless, I feel like it’s quite nice.

Leaving tomorrow!

September 29, 2008

Hey everyone,

I’m preparing to leave tomorrow on a ten week photography trip right now! I’ll be photographing fall color throughout the Blue Ridge, wildlife in Texas, and winter scenes throughout Canyon Country! To say that I’m excited is a huge understatement.

The first leg of my trip is six days in West Virginia, with Chris Kayler. We’re leaving tomorrow night after I complete a “court-ordered juvenile driving seminar”. I couldn’t be more excited about that either. After leaving West Virginia, I plan to make my way down to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I’ll certainly have a lot to say on here over the next few days, so stay tuned!

It may be a few days before I get back on to post again, so here’s another Shenandoah shot.

More Shenandoah!

This is another from the Shenandoah outing with Chris and Kari. I know we’d all prefer a more photogenic foreground in this photo, but photographing this sunset was a spur-of-the-moment deal and I made the most of what I had available to me! I do like the inclusion of the sun in my shot, but I still feel like it may be missing something. Oh well. Don’t be a stranger, feel free to say something if you so desire!
