Mineral Pool

Saw quite a feew of thesse pools or ponds where I guess the mineral deposits have leached out into the water. Here is a small one on the edge of town with the mountains reflecting.

Leaning Shack

This is one of my favorite shots. A song plays in my head every time I look at the scene – if I remember the title of the song I may rename the piece. But its really nice ;)

Originally shot a cople time in the afternoon, but went back and caught in perfect light with cool clouds… but I had just taken a jpeg of me in from of another shack and forgot to set back to RAW with multiple exposure & by the time I reset everything that sun had gone behind a cloud. So I waited around for a couple more hours and caught the sun popping out a little each time. So this is a composite of the single frame jpeg  with some later multiple exposures :)

Harpers Ferry – Bridge & Tunnel

Here are a couple from Harpers Ferry in West Virginia after the Frederick Maryland show. After crossing over the bridge I hiked up the Mountain over the tunnel to view the town (pics later).

On the way down, got caught in a thunderstorm and was a little nervous crossing back of the bridge with all the metal in the lighting. ‘Tesla Cage?’ ;)
