Cranberry River

Here's another one from my Cranberry trip week before last. I almost didn't post it, then I got to lookin' at it and decided I liked it.

The view from Ducks Cliff

This was taken from inside Ducks Cliff, high above the Elk river and Elkhurst Road in Clay county WV.
Sometimes when the color ain't quite right you have to go black & white.

Teays Valley Christian School...

...Middle School girls (the Lady Lions) volleyball team won the WVCAT championship today in Parkersburg. The girls defeated Greater Beckley Christian School 2 games to 1 to claim the title.

This was my daughters first year playing for the school. She had great time with the team this season.

Bruce Harrold has been a fixture around the Saint Albans Fire Department way longer than I have. He grew up near the fire station on Walnut St. and now lives downtown near station 1.

Muddlety, WV

My favorite shot of the day. Click on the picture for a better view.

There was a little...

...bit of color left in the mountains today. I got these shots at the Woodbine picnic area on the Cranberry river. That top picture is 6 different exposures that were blended together with Photomatix Pro to make a High Dynamic Range photo.

Gauley River

Some abstract water in the Gauley river, close to Holcomb, WV.

Summit Lake

Went to Cranberry today to try to catch the last of the colors. I walked around Summit Lake and saw a big golden trout just hangin' out on the bottom. It wasn't around where any fishermen were but when it saw me walkin' around it took off. It looked like a pretty good size, maybe a foot.

Both of these pictures are panoramas, so click if you want a better view.

I took this photo from the parking garage across the street from the library. I got the idea from Rick Lee. Mine was taken from a higher floor and a different angle. I think I like his better. I'm gonna try to get a shot of this scene this winter with snow covered streets and sidewalks. That would be cool;-)

Art Walk

My daughter and I went to the Art Walk in Charleston this evening. The Charleston Camera Club has a wall of photos on display at the Art Emporium on Quarrier St. I've already had one call from a guy that wants to buy a copy of my Charleston skyline panorama.

King's Island

We didn't get to go to King's Island this summer, so I told my daughter we'd go the first weekend in October. We were talking about going when we were with our friends Frank & Debbie one evening and they said they'd like to go too. So we loaded up Friday and went to Cincinnati. We went to see the Reds that evening, then King's Island today. We rode a bunch of coasters. Here's my list in order of favorites. The Diamond Back (the new coaster at KI) was awesome! We rode it twice. 230 feet tall, 80 mph, a mile long, 10 hills and Smooooth! Here's the rest, Firehawk, Delirium, Drop Zone, Face Off, Racer, Top Gun, Tomb Raider, Adventure Express and Molly and Esther rode the Slingshot. It was a great day, just a little cool but that's better than 90 any day.

Great American Ball Park

Full moon.

We really had to fight the crowd.
