Down East Road Trip – Shenandoah National Park

A Flyby Visit along the Ridges and Ravines of Shenandoah National Park

Shenandoah National Park - Rabbit at Breakfast

Because of our tight schedule, we had only a few hours to explore Shenandoah National Park. We certainly didn’t give the park the time it deserved, but despite our whirlwind adventure, we saw more wildlife, big and small, in Shenandoah, than we had seen in any other park.

Down East Road Trip – Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Finding Quiet in the Smoky Mountains on a Very Busy 4th of July Weekend

Great Smoky Mountain National Park - Sunset on Clingmans Dome

So… When we were planning our trip early this year, we knew many of the parks we visited can be busy during the summer, and while we planned around much of the busyness by visiting the most popular parks during mid-week, we weren’t so lucky with the Smoky Mountains. While our first park of the trip, Mammoth Caves, was relatively quiet, The Smokey Mountains were quite the opposite. Yet even so, the park is big by eastern standards and we were able to find spots of quiet respite along the way.

The Great Eastern Adventure – Virginia Falls and Farms

Part two of our Great Eastern Adventure continues with a trip through the heart of the Virginia Mountains – with its rolling hills and shadowy valleys.  In one such valley, just outside of Abingdon, VA, I found the above waterfall carrying the previous day’s rainfall along its rushing flow to the Atlantic.  As I traveled along the back roads of Appalachian Virginia, I discovered a wide variety of tableaus,  from a bright orange 1956 Chevy truck sitting alongside a railroad siding, to snow-capped mountains and rushing trains.  And, as seems to be my habit, I ventured to my favorite Americana Barn, the dappled sky to the east providing nice contrast to the brightly lit barn and shadowed hills beyond (below).

The Great Eastern Adventure – North Carolina Mountains

We recently had the pleasure of exploring much of our wonderful country, east of the rolling and rugged Appalachian Mountains.  Over the next few weeks, as time allows, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite shoots with you.  For our first installment, we give you the North Carolina mountains at dusk.  As we traveled up I-26, the clouds that had lingered all day began to show signs of thinning.  As sunset approached, we found a scenic stop west of Asheville and started to shoot.  Often clouded sunsets fizzle without much  excitement, but this time was one of those rare sunsets where the colors intensified and blossomed well into the dusk hour – culminating with the images you see below, a good 30 minutes after sunset.
