West Virginia Overlook

Somewhere in West Virginia

Wordless Wednesday






A field of Goldenrod glistens in the setting October sun, but I struggled to capture a photo that captured its glow. I moved in,  isolated, and thought maybe the surrounding foreground and background might hold the glow for me. This one I think got it.

Nikon D5200, 220mm, 1/50s, f5.8, ISO 800, late afternoon.


Conkle’s Hollow Rim View

Same photo, different orientation. Both are uncropped. The portrait orientation captures the power of the scene and the landscape orientation captures its serenity. Both photos capture lines and forms. The landscape orientation captures more texture, especially with the morning mist. At least this is my thinking. Anybody have a thought to share?

Conkles Hollow Landscape

My best landscape I posted Wednesday from Ash Cave.

Mostly I’ve taken more intimate landscapes or nature close up. I did take this photo from the Rim Trail at Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve (Ohio) last week. I snapped it on a whim, its not really in its peak of beauty. I’ve included the reward for walking the forest floor trail into the hollow, the intimate landscape of the inner falls.

For this weeks WPC Challenge.
