Yates Mill


Took a walk with the family the other day out at Yates Mill County Park. Pretty nice place!

The Washington Monument (and others)

This is the Washington Monument at sunrise, as seen from the Lincoln Memorial. There were very few people out that early in the morning, it was pretty nice 🙂

Behind me:

After shooting here, I headed on over to the Capitol Building to get a shot of it while it too was quiet. This is a 6 shot panorama:

The day before, I took in a baseball game at Nationals Park on a perfect afternoon for baseball:

Raven’s Roost at Night


(Looks better if you click on it!)

Many of you may remember my “Buzzard’s Roost at night” image, taken at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee (Seen below). Today, I’ve prepared a new similar image – “Raven’s Roost at Night”. This one was taken at the Raven’s Roost overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Lyndhurst, Virginia.

“Raven’s Roost at Night” is a combination of more than 160 photos, taken continually and merged together in post. The tree and the rocks were lit with a handheld flash fired manually several times from different locations. We are looking west in this image, so the stars appear to be streaking downward as they circle around the North Star, which is off to the right of the image. The colors in the sky is light pollution from nearby cities, reflecting into the clouds.

Hope you enjoy!
