No Inspection

Pretty sure this former service station hasn’t offered inspections, or any other services for that matter, in a number of years.

(Another note to self:  Pay attention to reflections in window glass)

US Rte 60 Waterfall

This roadside waterfall along US Rte 60 near Glen Ferris, WV, normally runs at a trickle, but I was lucky enough to catch it at a higher flow recently after persistent rain.

As far as I know this waterfall does not have a name, but if anyone local knows differently I’d be happy to hear from you.

Doorway

Doorway on a rustic building in downtown Montgomery, West Virginia.   Love the textures and patterns found on these old brick structures, each seems to offer something unique.

Humble Abode

Not sure why I’m attracted to scenes like this, pretty sure my wife thinks I’m nuts.  :)  The little flag was what originally caught my eye.

The Repair Pad

Early morning roadside scene in Quick, West Virginia.

Had a couple technique breakdowns during the making of this image, but managed to coax out enough image quality to have a passable blog post.  (Note to self:  remember to check and see if your polarizer is attached to your camera before cranking the ISO up to 1600 and trying to handhold slow shutter speeds).

Roadside Scene

Small shanty with lots of “stuff” on a well-tended property in Clay County, WV.

Contrails

Contrails seem to echo the shape of a cross atop a steeple in Beverly, West Virginia.

Fawn

No one will ever confuse me with a wildlife photographer, but I did want to share this image of a newborn fawn I came across recently while hiking.  It laid there perfectly still trying its best to remain unseen as I snapped off photos.
