Hunting Island Fog



We went out to the beach this afternoon and found some awesome fog.  It had been sunny until we got to Hunting Island, where it looked like a cloud had dropped out of the sky and covered the island.  It made for some great photography.

A couple of rail car panoramas that I liked.  The top one is a 3 shot panorama and the bottom one is 4.  Click on them for a better view.

Gauley Bridge, WV


This is the little town where I grew up.  I actually didn't live in town but on up the Gauley River about 3 miles in a wide spot in the road called Alta, WV.  We did everything in Gauley though, school, church, friends, groceries, doctor, pharmacy, clothes, haircuts, tv repair and on and on.  It was a pretty neat town when I was a kid and probably even more so when my mom and grandmother were growing up there.

The New River and the Gauley River both end right where the bright lights are and they form the Kanawha River.

Molly and I had gone rock climbing this afternoon and we were on our way home and we stopped at the end of the "boulevard" to see if the Milky Way was visible over Gauley.  It was visible, but it was almost directly overhead and not over the town.  I went ahead and made a few photos anyway, just for s & g's.  This was also the first time I had used my Fuji xe-2 for any night sky photography.  I think it did ok.

Charleston Baptist Temple


This is from one day last week.  All we've had is cloudy weather for a while, but it makes for good black and white photography.
