Riding the Back Roads with Camera in Hand
Our Blue Ridge Mountains have a peacefulness and tranquility about them that is impossible to find anywhere else. A morning scene in the fog just accents that beautifully.From Alleghany county, NCBonita, my website at www.photographybybonita.com

Went backpacking with my good buddy Pete and met my other good buddy Steve up on the mountain. We linked up with more awesome and fun peeps to spend an amazing night on top of the mountain. When we all turned in for the night the wind was relentless with as it howled the entire evening on top of Big Hump Mountain at the Roan Highlands, This is what you should expect, and be prepared for when camping this high up in elevation. When morning came, the wind died down. I emerged from my tent in awe as I was witnessing one of the more colorful sunrises in a while. I ran down to this spot, where the wind flattened the brush. I used it as leading lines to draw the view deeper in to the photo as you can see Grandfather Mountain in the background. These are the moments that make my heart skip a few beats. I come back home refreshed and humbled to start a new week on a positive note. Feel free to share y'all. Thanks.

"Where I was Born - Where I was Raised" - Patterson Creek Valley- Short Gap, West Virginia - Fort Ashby, West VirginiaLabor Day, 2015Consider myself very fortunate to have grown up and resided in a valley that, from my perspective, can proudly be announced as having it all.As a winded my way through the valley on this Labor Day, 2105 morning well before many rose from their nights rest. I Was graciously greeted by Bald Eagles, White-tailed Deer, Turkey and numerous other small game and birds. The early morning valley was muffled with creek fog. The ground and vegetation glistened with the dew of the cool summer night as the sun softly pushed its way to the valley floor. Scarred by man but vastly unchanged in my forty eight years of life I can proudly say this is "Where I was born - Where I was raised".BK Photography- 2015

Landscapes of the Blue Ridge
Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day. The sky turned so pretty I had to get out on the parkway and ended up at the Peaks of Otter. There were many families out and about enjoying the day, saw some kids catch some fish nearby. This is Abbott Lake with Sharp Top reflected along with the pretty sky.

Happy start of Labor Day Weekend, everyone! I know this is the traditional "end" of Summer, but I'll fight that for as long as the weather is good.Today's photo is another in a long running struggle for me - capturing what the forest "looks like" in West Virginia. The details and play of light and shadow is gorgeous to the eye, but is very challenging to capture in a photograph (especially a single non-HDR frame) - it always seems they end up busy, or badly lit. A worthy challenge!Today's image from Gaudineer Scenic Area, the conditions were gorgeous this day, and this was my daughters first visit to this place. She spent her time building "fairy houses" out of sticks, and the sun-dappled moss meant I had to try once again to get "the" forest photo.smile emoticonHope everyone has a safe and fun weekend!Hemlock Forest (Gaudineer) - West Virginia(C)2015 Samuel Taylor Photography, All Rights ReservedLike What You See?
