I recall my last visit to the Blue Ridge Institute and Museum in Ferrum, Virginia. It’s a photographers treasure trove of compositions. The above image, and the next one, are from there. The last image is not. The colorful barn located along the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of my favorites. However, today the barn is in poor condition and the paint has faded to where “color” is only a wish. I’m so glad I was able to make this image when the scene was perfect for me. This aspect of photography is what I love the most. Being able to go back through our archives to view how things were. Memories.
Made about 3500 feet above sea level in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, near Meadows of Dan. Thankfully a relatively short drive from home. Colors are mainly past peak, but I looked hard and found some nice ones. I plan to start sharing more over the next few posts.
Here are a few examples of just how nice mountain landscape photos look when they were made with puffy clouds overhead and sunlight filtering through. These were made last week at about 4000 feet elevation at mile marker 169, on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. Fujifilm X100T. PS: It won’t be much longer before the colors are going to change. I’ll be there.
