“The best camera is the one you have with you.”
Yep. I was driving to work one day and saw a dramatic sky forming over the mountains. I had my older camera and a macro lens (sigh) in the truck and headed up the Blue Ridge. I made it just in time to catch one of the most spectacular fog ocean sunrises I’ve ever witnessed.

Aging Gracefully

In the rolling Virginia countryside near Front Royal, ample evidence exists of Civil War-era buildings and old farms. This old barn seems to be aging gracefully due in part, to it's newer, modern roof.

This image is a digital oil painting based on the original photograph.
