Working on my backlog of miscellaneous images. I was in Fishersville Virginia last November for the Virginia Woodturning Symposium. The weather was good so I stopped by Raven’s Roost Overlook in search of the Milky Way.

Through The Lens 167 – Mesa Arch
Hard to believe it has been 8 years since I took this photo of Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. If you’ve heard the stories about this place, there is often dozens of photographers jockeying for position at sunrise. On this particular morning, I was the only one there. Sometimes you just get lucky.
Through The Lens 162 – Great Falls Ice
Some ice formations on a small section of Great Falls from a cold snap a couple of years ago.

Through The Lens 151 – Abrams Falls Autumn

Oregon Trip Report 2018 – Part 3
Continuing on from Part 1 and Part 2, Day Three started with a trip up the coast to see Haystack Rock:
Terrible Tilly (Tillamook Rock Lighthouse):
Hug Point Falls:
The original plan was to continue up the coast, but due to the cloud cover, we decided that it was perfect waterfall weather, so we headed to Portland to the Columbia River Gorge. Upon arriving we found clear skies and sun. Go figure. Stops included Lower Latourell Falls:
Upper Latourell Falls:
And because the weather had cleared, the last stop of the trip was Mt. Hood for sunset:
Watching the alpenglow fade on Mt. Hood was a great way to end the trip. Thanks for following along.
Through The Lens 133 – Gettysburg Clearing Storm
Trip Report – Railfest 2017
Last fall, I attended Steamtown National Historic Site’s annual Railfest. The highlight of the event was a night photo session that included scenes at the Sand Tower, Mattes Street Tower and the Roundhouse. I arrived in time for the night session Saturday night and then stayed over to see the event Sunday. Special events included demonstrations in the machine shop, tours of the Office and Stores Building, and of course train rides pulled by Baldwin Locomotive Works #26.

Through The Lens 116 – Night at the Roundhouse
One of my favorite photos from the night session held during the 2017 Railfest at Steamtown National Historic Site. Steve Barry provided the lighting and did an excellent job as usual. Unlike the typical practice of late where night sessions are lit with a constant light source, this one was done with flash which produces a much better quality of light and freezes the smoke and steam.
Just finished editing the photos from Railfest, so look for a trip Report Tuesday.
