Green Bank Telescope



A couple more shots of the GBT.  The guy that gave us the tour said the people that work there call it the Great Big Thing.  That thing is awesome up close.

Psalm 19:1


The heavens declare the glory of God;  the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

My first attempt at photographing the Milky way.  The telescope in the corner is the Green Bank Telescope.  The largest land-based movable structure on earth.  It's pretty impressive up close.

Cold, Snow and Fog




My daughter and I went to Snowshoe today.  Kim's sick and she wanted us out of hair, so she booted us out.  ;-)  Our friends brother has an apartment there that he just remodeled and he let us have it for the weekend.  When we got here it was 32 degrees, about an inch of snow and fog, fog, fog!

Babcock State Park


My obligatory fall color photo of the grist mill at Babcock State Park.  There's a big tree limb in the water above the falls, on the right side of the creek, that's kinda restricting the flow to that side.  If I had had my Keen's on I would've waded out there and moved it.  Oh well.

Bridge Day 2011





I hadn't been to Bridge Day since probably 1984 or '85 and Molly had never been, even though we only live about an hour away, so we loaded up and went today.  We watched the BASE jumpers from the bridge for a while then we hiked out to Long Point and watched them from there.  It was a super nice day for it and the crowds weren't as bad as I thought they might be.  Kim wasn't feeling good so it was just me and the baby girl.  We had a great time.

That rapid you can see is Fayette Station rapid.  Kim's favorite.  Probably because it's the last one before you take out of the lower New when you're whitewater rafting.  ;-)

121 Summers St.


Went to Charleston this morning to participate in the annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk.  It was a nice morning for it and I got a few cool shots.  This is a restored building on Summers St that was originally built in 1912.
