A slow drizzle of rain floats through the hills. It’s just enough rain to bring out the color of the leaves along the Kanawha River. I know by the mood of the clouds that the winds are well on their way. The high winds that come about this time of year just after the color peaks strips the leaves from the trees and scatters the fall colors. I have one chance to catch them before this happens. The curved railroad bridge between Alloy and Deepwater has always been one of my favorite subjects and I’m actually ahead of schedule for my morning commute so I pull the big blue truck onto the berm and try to get as far off of the road as possible. When I opened the door of the truck the smell of the rain mingled with my morning coffee and invigorated my soul. I only have a few minutes to grab a handful of frames so I got right to work. The gracefully curved bridge with it’s rustic feel mirrored in the Kanawha River was the perfect subject for catching the colors of fall on the Kanawha River. I could spend all day exploring different angles and settings but it the day job that pays the bills. So, I tuck my cameras away and grip the steel cable as take one more breath of fresh before moving on to the next opportunity.
