At Rest

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “At Rest 21620” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

I’ve been told that if the devil can’t hold you back then he’ll push you forward. The modern world is constantly humming with it’s hustle and bustle and there seldom seems to be time to take a breath.

I look at tonight’s feature image and think about how chaotic and choppy the water seems to be. Like the modern world it never really stops moving with ripples that go in every direction and eddies that swirl around threaten to toss you about. But if you can that place of stillness like the little structure in the water you can hold your focus even if it’s just for a moment.

Winter Sanctuary On The Kanawha River

Hello friends!Tonight’s feature image is titled “Winter Sanctuary On The Kanawha River” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The evening sky fades into a velvety blue as I near the end of my daily journey back to my mountain. The glow of the headlights pierce the darkness to reveal the yellow lines that guide me home. As I pass through curves the radiance of sodium lights casts their luminance against the darkness ahead of me. The majestic old inn stands near the river with its Victorian columns and stone walls that surround the grounds welcoming all passers by into sanctuary for the night. As pulled into the parking lot of Methodist church on the other side of town I could still the inviting glow of the lights from the Glen Ferris Inn. The reflection danced on the water with sky in it’s indigo hue. I knew that I had found tonight’s feature image.

Boone Park Sunset 2.17.20

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Boone Park Sunset 21720a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As the clouds break from days of rain the new found light lingers on the landscape. The mighty Kanawha River is still swollen with the runoff but otherwise peaceful. I decided to detour down to Daniel Boone Park on my way home to try and find a few ducks or geese to photograph but they were long gone as the dusk crept over the river. Gazing downstream I see the contrails catching the sun and think about how they look like golden threads in the tapestry of the sky. As my eyes follow those lines to the horizon I find the pool of color that erupts from the broken clouds and spills into the river. For me, mid February to mid March is my season of sunsets. It’s when I get the most opportunity to catch God painting the sky with light. As watched the light fade from view through my lens I felt the calling of my big blue truck telling me to hurry back up the pathway before the light is completely gone. As I near the top of the bank I cast my eyes back to river just in time to see the sunset fade into shadows. A few clicks of the remote and Big Blue opens his eyes to light up the way and bring me in. It’s time to return to my mountain and leave the valley of lights behind.

February Sunset Over Marmet Locks.

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Sunset Over Marmet Locks 21420” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The big blue truck rolls back to my mountain with unwavering commitment in the evening. The trip requires less use of the headlights every day. For the first time since October I’m blessed to have a beautiful sunset on my journey home. I gently nudge the wheel and move to the side of the road. The only place where there’s enough room to get completely out of the way is across from the Marmet Locks. The series of locks and dams on the Kanawha River make it possible to transport the coal from the mountains to the rest of the world. I arrived at the wide spot just in time to enjoy the sun’s finale for the day as the crimson glow is cast against the rain clouds in a promise of the brighter days ahead.

Taking A Few Minutes To Enjoy A Peaceful Morning

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls 12420” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As the night shrinks away in the glow of the morning sun the clouds retreat into the horizon. The peaceful sky is mirrored by the upper Kanawha River as the local ducks glide in for a landing on the far side of the water. As their ripples proceed them small fish leap forward and dive into the safety of the deep. The remnant clouds marble the sky in layers and golden rays breech the ridge. There’s still a bit of a chill in morning air which smells of woodsmoke mingled with the coffee in my tumbler. On this particular morning the forest is silent save only the droning roar of the water spilling over the dam and the rocks below. In the coming days the rain will return but for now there is peace.

The Beauty Of Blue and Green

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Walnut Tree 12420″and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The weather breaks for a short time while old man winter draws his next breath. We typically feel his next icy blast sometime around Valentines Day.

Meanwhile in the valley the Kanawha River runs strong and steady on its perpetual march to the Ohio River. A few water birds are seen playing follow the leader on the other side but even my 400 mm lens is too weak for a good shot at that range. I’ve seen what looks like a Hooded Merganser paddling in the flat water above the falls but I haven’t been able to get close enough to be sure. One by one the ducks take off from the river and sail over the falls. So I take out my phone and go for a vertical panoramic of the Walnut Tree on the lot. It’s an ancient tree and it’s massive crown seems to reach out and tickle the clouds as the roll by. I have to work quickly because I only have a few minutes for the stop and so after the shots are taken I climb back up into the big blue truck throw the phone on charge. Later as I do my touch ups and edits I noticed that the grass in the photo is no longer dry and brown as it was just three short weeks ago. Instead it’s fresh and green. Last year I noticed that some of tree buds had begun to swell near the end of February and the green grass is just one more sign that nature us slowly beginning to stir.

Overflow

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Overflow 102219” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The hydroelectric dam at Glen Ferris is well integrated with natural beauty of Kanawha Falls. The lake formed by the same is often mirror smooth. The dam is an overflow dam and with the exception of that water that’s channed into the turbines it sweeps over the edge of dam. At the right angles it looks like a hole in the river. Below the dam the leading edge of the flow looks like liquid glass which shatters on the rocks below only to coalesce again as it makes it’s way to merge with the Ohio River.
