As a New Englader, Florida summers are, in a word, torture. And so, as the temperatures rise, we do our best to take to the road and plot a course north for a few weeks of fine art photography. That means, over the next few weeks, we’ll be uploading some of our favorite photos from our recent adventure for your viewing and downloading pleasure. We’re calling this collection Essence of Summer. Stay with us!
Tonight’s post is mostly from an excursion up to one of my favorite places in the world – White Top Mountain, in extreme western Virginia. With big boomers to the northeast and some clouds between me and the sun, I wasn’t sure what I would get, but the trip proved rewarding, offering up probably the most stunning sunset I have experienced up on the mountain. And, as an extra added bonus, I discovered that the path I wander down to shoot these images is actually a little known trail locals like to call the ‘AT’. So, that means I can say I hike the Appalachian Trail a few times a year, right? It might be the same 100 yards, but hey, at least it’s something…
I also have to give a big shout out to Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The company proved a gigantic life saver. While visiting Virginia, we had two automotive shoots down in Atlanta – so I had reserved a vehicle to pick up part of the way up to VA, so that I could drive directly to Atlanta and the family could continue to our destination. Unfortunately, after several hours on the phone, we discovered the company with which we had reserved a car not only did not have the type of car we had reserved, but didn’t have a single vehicle available to rent…in the entire tri-city region! Thankfully, the folks at Enterprise were more than happy to help, and put me in a great Elantra (above) at a better rate – and did so with 30 minutes notice!
As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – they are full HD images, 1080P, and perfect for your computer, tablet or television – and if you enjoy our photos, please follow us – and for extra bonus points, share this blog with your friends to help us get the word out!
