Male Eastern Bluebird showing off his brilliant royal blue.The Eastern Bluebirds population was in decline at one time due to the more aggressive European Starling taking over it's nesting cavities. The National Park Services strives to manage and preserve natural resources, as well as, native species. They took notice of this and has helped to restore this beautiful bird by placing Bluebird houses along the Blue Ridge Parkway.Vinton, VirginiaNear the Blue Ridge ParkwayPhoto taken: 3/1/16

Elakala #2Shays RunBlackwater Falls State Park2/26/2016#gettuckeredI had a great time last Thursday evening with the Buckhannon Upshur Camera Club - what a great group of folks! Afterwards, I drove on up to the Canaan Valley area and spent Friday traipsing about in a beautiful winter wonderland. A visit to Shays Run is always in order when I'm in the area, and it was fun capturing images with the freshly fallen snow.Thanks for taking a look. Please share so that others may enjoy the natural beauty of West Virginia and the majesty of God's creation. Have a great day.©Randall Sanger Photography | All Rights Reserved | Please feel free to share this image, it is encouraged and appreciated.

Landscapes of the Blue Ridge
I saw my first grackle come back today in my yard and that is always a serious indicator that spring is indeed well on the way. The crocus, tulips and daffodils are also well up out of the ground, and I've even seen some spring flowers blooming in some other yards. Though these things are happening, doesn't mean cold weather and snow still can't collide with it all.These daffodils are a patch that I have shot for many years in a location that I kept to myself, since they are in a much more scenic setting than the typical masses along the highways and in medians. I caught them on two occasions when they were blooming and then a late snow came. This was the last time. This patch was a VERY old stand, probably around since before the Civil War when there was a plantation on this site. Sadly, they will be no more. Some old slaving buildings that were nearby have been moved to make way for construction, so these flowers will be getting the bulldozer if they have not already. They sure were nice in their time, and it was a very long time indeed.

Long Point Soliloquy"Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future."— H. G. Wells, The Time MachineA long exposure depicts the movement of stars over the New River Gorge bridge in West Virginia just after twilight.Feel free to share!Prints and other infor: http://www.reflectioninapool.com/— at Long Point Trail - New River Gorge.
