Buffalo Mountain

P1040349-2

In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, there is a landmark which, legend says, was for years a sight seen by young people who were told, “Stay close enough to home where you can see The Buffalo.” By that instruction, parents were referring to Buffalo Mountain, which from afar looks like the “hump” on the back of a Buffalo. Today, the mountain is seen and often photographed from an overlook while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. Several years ago, I drove a steep winding rocky road that led to a dead end, at which point I parked my car and hiked a fair distance to the summit of The Buffalo. Standing there on large rock outcrops, I surveyed the beauty of the Blue Ridge, and felt like I’d gone back in time a bit. As such, I wanted to process my recent photo of Buffalo Mountain, taken miles away, to look like a vintage picture.
