The blog has been a bit scatter-brained over the past month, with no particular order – so why change, right? Today we are featuring several of our ultra-high resolution 100 megapixel fine art panoramas from our recent photo expeditions. Above is one of our favorite panoramas from a foggy evening shoot in Dover Point, NH, just outside of the great local seafood restaurant, Newick’s. That evening proved an absolutely stunning display of glory and we were able to capture several panoramas as day gave way to night. While in Virginia, we visited one of our favorite locations, White Top Mountain (below) and despite never fully seeing the sun as it set, the low cloud layer and never-ending layers of ridges made for some pretty panoramas all the same.

So, I may have said that the previous post was may last post from our trip, but as I have come to learn, I’m not always right! God surprised me with a wonderful treat our last day in Virginia and with the weather being rather frigid for much of us here in the US, I thought this post might at least bring some beauty to the otherwise dreary weather.
As we were winding up our trip, one last little snowfall came to Virginia. In the hills of Abingdon it was a light dusting, but as I set out with family that morning, I went over a rise (above) and saw that Mt. Rogers and White Top Mountain were both covered in a layer of snow that looked so light and fluffy that it could be mistaken for a cloud. Later that afternoon, my eldest daughter and I braved the roads, ascending the western slope of White Top. At about 3,500 feet, the sparse snow gave way to an amazing winter wonderland – with trees absolutely covered in a delicate coating of white. And as we climbed, it just kept getting better! Prudence had me turn around before attempting the final mile of dirt road up to the summit, but there was an array of beauty to be had as we descended – such as the image below. Toward the bottom of the mountain, with the sun setting to our left, I found a few old buildings, covered with just a hint of snow – a perfect way to end our winter adventure.

We recently had the pleasure of heading out on a few fine art excursions over the winter break. Our trip began in western Virginia, near Bristol, TN – where I managed to get up in time for a gorgeous sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains. I recently added a 1.4x teleconverter to our equipment, which allowed me to get up close and personal with both the moon and the blinding sun as it rose over the mountains. By the time the sun crested the rise, it was far too bright to look at. My solution – I would aim slightly to the left, focus the camera, close my eyes, and then shift the camera right until I felt the sun on my eye. It took a few tries, but I was able to get the shot I wanted without seeing spots for the next 6 hours…

This selection of photos is from the Virginia portion of our trip. As is usually the custom when we visit western Virginia – I’ll get up for a sunrise shoot, winding along the back country roads in search of the perfect spot to catch the sun as it peeks over the ridge. Above is what I stumbled upon this time – just outside the community of Chilhowie, VA.

While I absolutely love the rocky coasts of New England and the rustic charm of Central PA, One of my favorite places on this globe has to be White Top Mountain. Every time we’re in Virginia, I take a solo trip up the mountain – driving up the windy gravel road to the beuatiful summit of this rock. White Top boasts the only natural highland meadow in all of the South and usually provides breathtaking vistas of the valley below and row upon row of mountains beyond. A thick but swift moving cloud layer is what I found this year! Here are a few of my favorite shots. Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!
