Great weekend at the Bluemont Fair

Thanks to the community for their support this weekend at the Bluemont Fair. This by far was the best experience I've had at an event like this. Not only did I have record sales, but also terrific feedback from the community and offers to shoot on local farms. Thanks a ton to the kind folks of Loudoun County!

Wet Monday hike

At 9 AM this morning, the Blue Ridge was sopping wet. As I hiked up the ridge, the mist became thicker until finally turning to rain. Ten minutes to the bottom later, I headed back up with umbrella in hand. Nearing the top I was treated to a spectacular view of western Loudoun filled with a sun spotted ground between columns of rain. This photo features a northern view as the sun broke above me. More to come...

Stoney Point revisit

One day I will capture this location in all it's deserved glory. Yesterday evening was not it. It seems that sunrise may play better in this location. No regrets however, it was a peaceful evening filled with gentle winds, goose calls and something strange in the woods behind me.

Green moss and granite

This unique combination of nature was discovered just off the Appalachian Trail about three miles south of Bears Den cabin. My eyes were drawn to emerald green moss set against a large, cracked chuck of white granite. The moss is growing between the one inch cracks within the granite. Ultra and mega hard just hanging out together in the woods.

Magic Mushroom

During fall of last year I drove to to capture the changing leaves in fog. The road to the cabin produced wonderful photos reminiscient of images from fairy tales. This photo features a pure white cap mushroom with a backdrop of lush green fogginess. At any moment you would expect to see wood fairies to pop out of hiding, giggling at you.

Joys for Trots

Moments before this photo was taken, the nearest horse chased a goose off the pasture. It reminded me of chasing birds from the yard. It's amazing to see such a large animal acting like a frisky little dog.

Blooming Wysteria!

Last night I hiked over to a piece of land that recently sold and discovered a huge Wysteria vine in full bloom. I hope that the host tree remains standing after the houses go it.

Thanks for the props and links Lenny (DC Art News). From the Purcellville Police Blotter April 17: "...a woman complained of an unknown person talking to her friend and claiming to be her".
