I took this sunset shot a few weeks ago before the big snow storm up on Round Bald on Roan Mountain. Doesn't look like we'll have as much snow this week but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get something! — at Appalachian Trail Roan Mountain.

Hooray, it's Friday!As I noted Tuesday, I was fortunate to celebrate a birthday last weekend. In celebration, we decided to travel to Blackwater Falls State Park, and enjoyed a great couple of days in the region. I had made my mind up that I wanted to make the trek to Lindy Point. Lindy Point is justifiably famous as one of the signature views in West Virginia, but I hadn't experienced that scene in the winter, with snow on the mountains. Realizing that after the storms last week, there was plenty of snow to be had, I convinced the lady that this would be a worthy project for a birthday weekend. So, we loaded up the camera gear, some nice and warm layers and waterproof pants and boots, a couple thermoses of coffee, and started walking, with the intent of arriving a bit before sunset, and staying through till the stars came out.It was an absolutely gorgeous, if chilly walk. The road is closed in the winter at the sledding hill, which makes the round trip about 3 miles, and we arrived just a little earlier than we expected! While the walking in the woods was pretty, the conditions on the point were a bit raw - non-stop wind blowing right up the canyon, into our faces, and not a lot of places to get out of the wind. Still, we had geared up for the conditions, and enjoyed an absolutely stunning sunset. It was amazing how much warmer it felt when we walked back into the woods, and the snow made the woods bright enough to walk, even without moon or headlamp. As we made our way out, the light dropped into a gorgeous clear night - more of that soon. This image was my favorite of that sunset - a long thought about experience, made in perfect conditions with one of my favorite people.Photo nerdity - this photo is an HDR photograph, made from 5 images to capture highlight and shadow.I hope everyone has a great weekend!Winter Sunset at Lindy Point - West Virginia(C)2016 Samuel Taylor Photography, All Rights ReservedPrints, Fine Art Pieces, and Photo Licensing Available!

Snowy Sunset at Lake James - FEEL FREE TO SHARE!On the weekend of January 23, 2016, Burke County, NC witnessed some of the largest snow totals seen in recent history. Winter Storm Jonas dumped quite a lot of snow across the Eastern Seaboard, and North Carolina's mountains received an average of 12-16" in some places. Amidst all of the snow and grocery store chaos for the last loaf of bread and gallon of milk, a beautiful sunset was settling across the peaceful Lake James shoreline. It is always so lovely to see something so tranquil amidst the chaos of a snow storm, especially something this beautiful. Check out a photo from that snowy January evening as the sunset lit up the skies above beautiful Lake James.Connect with me!Website: http://www.cathyandersonphotography.com/Facebook: www.facebook.com/CathyAndersonPhotoInstagram: http://instagram.com/cathyandersonphotoTwitter: http://twitter.com/cathyanderson27 (@cathyanderson27)Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125802685@N03/ (cathyandersonphoto)500px: http://500px.com/CathyAndersonGoogle+: https://plus.google.com/+CathyAndersonPhotographyYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/CathyAndersonPhotography
