Last night I did my annual hike up the silo owned by Farmer James. It was windy and cold, but well worth the 85 foot ascent. You may recall the inaugural vertical hike posted July of 2006. The whole landscape lit up with color as the sun inched closer to the Blue Ridge. This north facing shot reveals the town of Purcellville in the upper right. You can see the amount of development that occurred between then and now by comparing the photos.
The silos in question. The one on the right is the little one. The one on the left was climbed to capture the photo above.

After working with the Loudoun Museum for nearly two years, the Lure of Loudoun book has finally been published. This book features about sixteen of my color photographs, many of which are featured in this blog. Most are shown in the beginning and end of the book as well as the back cover. The book can be purchased at the Loudoun Museum and many of your favorite Inn's and Libraries throughout Loudoun County. It's a 300 page hard cover book filled with incredible data, history and tales of the county. All of my photographs were donated in support of the museum.
Update: The book can be ordered using this form: http://loudounmuseum.org/book_order_form_2010.pdf.
