Grain trailers

Locals will recogize these grain trailers from thier grassy parking place along Rt. 7 and the WO&D bike trail. This active farm explodes with green every spring as they add nitrogen to the soil in preparation of planting. Right now, the adjacent field is a blanket of yellow from the small field flowers in bloom.

Update Jan 2011 - The new power line runs through this spot today.

Making best of a gray day

Yes, gray days can be depressing but they don't have to be. Grab your camera and hits the fields because they sometimes produce nice photos. Frequent readers of this blog may recognize this spot from previous shoots. I'm still working on getting this location just right. Don't let the grays get you down.

Tranquil Pond with Geese

This secluded pond runs along a gentle rise in the earth on Williams Gap Road. The quiet spot is home to an wide array of wildlife including Canadian Geese, deer, hawks and small rodents. The only noise that could be heard was the slight motion of the passing geese and light droplets of rain hitting the mirrored pond. Heaven!

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 Pokeberry

Saturday was a misty gray day that covered everything in water droplets, this Pokeberry is no exception. It's brightly colored pink/purple stems contrast nearly everything around it. While it looks delicious, the berries are poisonous though it young leaves can be eaten as greens. One way to turn a gray day around...
