Time for Essentials

Nothing like a well-organized shelf of goodies. From Harper's Ferry, WV.
I had to stand in the doorway with my view camera to catch this. Lucky it was a slow day in the National Historical Park.

A one-handed clock and plenty of Monongahela Whisky at White Hall Tavern.

Have you discovered Virginia's Bluebells yet? Many of our creek banks are in color right now as the Bluebells parade among the trees. But they won't last long...get out there.

Beach Front Property

As summer approaches, many of us are searching for perfect lodging for the season's beach trip. Here's one, but accommodations are limited.

I found this old shell on Edisto Island, SC. I wanted to remember how full of character it was, and how compliant it was to the ebb and flow of nature.

I wondered how many times this old sea shell had been forced to relocate due to the moods of the tide.

March Snow at Waterford Mill

Here in northern Virginia we often get our heaviest snowfalls in March. They're usually the wet, heavy snows that stick to everything. Then, just as suddenly as they arrive, the warm winds take them away. And before we know it, this young dogwood tree will be covered in blossoms. My favorite time of year.

A small dogwood tree waits the coming of spring on the Virginia Piedmont.

Getting anxious to visit the Carolina Lowcountry. I'd certainly stop by and see the Angel Oak and other local woodlands sites.

Bifurcations

As we edge into Spring, this tree will put on its summer face. Until then, I'll just enjoy its millions of bifurcations. Count them yourself by visiting the link.
Hint: FB cropped the image; hit the link to see full frame, which includes a nice reflection of the tree.

The elegance of a lone tree is only made greater when reflected.

A Walk Through the Hemlocks

Even as another winter storm pounds us here in Virginia, I'm still walking among the big hemlocks and ferns in Appalachia (at least in my mind). Feel free to join me.

In the panhandle of WV is a small tract of old growth hemlocks. Forever protected from the saw, but not from Nature.

"Still Morning at the Courthouse" - adding to my "Small Town Virginia" collection.
Remember the foggy morning we had last week in Loudoun County? I got up early to see the show. See the collection here:

Standing in Obscurity

Like humans, trees have an uncanny way of speaking most clearly while remaining obscure.
There's more to the image than FB is showing you. Tap it to see it all.

Standing in Obscurity

Another solemn site at Antietam. The graceful old oak tree seemed as much a monument as the monument.

Bloody Lane Sunset Antietam NHP

Another solemn site at Antietam. The graceful old oak tree seemed as much a monument as the monument.

This solemn scene evokes quiet thoughts of the many Americans who lost their lives here in 1864.

Along Lime Kiln Road

Are we going to get more of this white stuff? Not this week. It feels like the tropics out there.

The best part of a snowfall is just after it ends, before the following winds dislodge the tentative flakes clinging to the smallest branches.

Celebrity, and what it's worth.

"Town Tour"- what can we say about Lexington, VA? Still lots of historic architecture and signage, quiet side streets, busy museums and other cultural finds, and yes, even carriage rides! From my Small Town Virginia Collection at https://gallery.jrileystewart.com/small-town-virginia/

About the Romantic Landscapes Collection

I took some time this afternoon to describe why I choose to make romantic style landscapes in my personal photography work.

After 40 years of making photographs, my love of romantic landscapes has been a constant source of inspiration. They always seem to involve some manifestation of the curious dance that light and shadow play upon old man-made artifacts sitting in a natural environment.

Leave a comment if you're also drawn to such images.
