Beautiful Picture of Old Rag

April 22, 2011

VA-2009-01-05-001 Old Rag at Dawn

This was my second of two consecutive days attempt to capture sunrise at Old Rag, Shenandoah National Park. There was nothing to shot Sunday morning so I hiked up again Monday morning. Left the parking lot at 0500 and started the hike in the dark.

The photo will appear dark in your monitor and I left it this way so it would really reflect what was witnessed at the moment. This is a 600 sec exposure at f/11, ISO 50.

Picture of the Day: Appalachian Trail by Night

July 20, 2010

Moonlight Hike on the A.T.

Hiking on the Appalachian Trail by moonlight can be an exhilarating experience, to say the least. It’s beautiful and mysterious, and with the knowledge that you are walking in the presence of bear, your limited vision can play tricks on you. The fog adds to the adventure especially where the trail passes close to the edge of a cliff.

This shot was taken at night, of course, on the A.T. between Thunder Ridge and Apple Orchard Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia…

The light in front is from the flash.
