I've just recently arrived home from a trip to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, Virginia, and have yet to process any photos from that trip. Overall, it was rainy and windy and I don't think I was able to make any special images. For now, I will show some more images from my autumn travels throughout West Virginia, western Maryland, and Shenandoah National Park. This particular image is from one of the most unique sunsets I have been fortunate enough to experience. After two days of rain, and then wind, the skies eventually began to clear as I made my way out to Tablerock Overlook in West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest. With an expansive view of the mountains and valleys below, and a pothole full of fresh rain water, all the potential elements of a great photograph were there. All I needed was some nice light ... and nice light I got! As the sun traveled its course and moved below the clouds, the mountainsides became painted with warm evening light. This alone was beautiful, but not particularly unique, until I realized that the thick cloud banks were still casting their shadows onto the tops of the mountains. A golden sliver of light such as this is an event most landscape photographers dream of. Hopefully it will be my first of many!
