Destiny In The Mists

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Destiny In The Mists” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Sometimes when we look ahead to the next leg of life’s journey we can’t really see where it will take us. The temptation is stay where we are and be comfortable. However, the truth is that there is no staying where we are. We either move forward or we are pulled back. We have to trust the bridge builder. He knew how to make the bridge strong enough to hold us up and he knew where the bridge had to go. We may not see the destiny clearly now but as we draw closer the vision will clear and we’ll know where to step.

My closing thoughts for tonight’s post is that faith is moving forward in trust and it is necessary for a well lived life.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

A Misty Journey & Daydreaming Of The Ancient Past

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Misty Journey 113020a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

As the big blue truck rolls beyond what has become it’s normal boundaries the mist and rain fall gently on my world. This is time of shadows when forest sheds it’s colorful blanket of Fall hues and sleeps deeply. Through the bare boles along the highway I see the curved bridge stretching out across the mighty Kanawha River. This bridge has always inspired a bit of wanderlust for me. There are days when I just want to follow the tracks over the mountains and through the tunnel at the little community of Deepwater on the other side of the river. The land on the other side of the river was the home of the Adena. The mysterious Pre-Columbian people who built the mounds and circled the mountains with stone walls. It’s said that they were giants and had bronze age metallurgy. As I stare at the mist covered mountains in the distance I wonder if they would be impressed with the iron and concrete used by the current Appalachian people. I wonder if somewhere on those misty mountains is there lies a stone pipe or a piece of copper jewelry worked by the hands of a legend. It would be a hidden treasure indeed. As I’m lost in my daydream of giant natives and ancient stones I’m drawn suddenly back to reality when a cold raindrop finds its way to the back of my neck. It’s time to return to Big Blue and make my way back to my fireplace where I can process my photos and tell my tales.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

The Days Of Transition And Looking Forward To The New Light

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Trestle Bridge 112420a” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The late Fall sun hangs low in the sky and hovers just above the ridges of the Appalachian Mountains. I find myself returning from a day of running errands and on the way home I’m drawn to the wonderful old railway bridge at Gauley Bridge. The small town bosts a population of around 600 people now that the mines are shut down and all the tourists are gone. With the exception of the occasional passersby like myself the streets are quite and it would be easy to think of yourself as having the world all to yourself. At the base of the bridge the illusion of solitude is enhanced by the vegetation that hides the homes which are nestled comfortably at the base of the mountain on the far side of river. Occasionally I can hear music or smell the smoke from a well tended hearth. But, for the most part the world consists only of the bridge and the quiet river. The small birds fluster about in the bushes collecting the bits and pieces that will thicken their nest against the oncoming winter. Bridges symbolize transition and we stand on the edge of of the change in seasons. In just 21 days Fall will end and winter will begin. The shadows start to grow short again and old Sol will slowly climb to his rightful place in the sky. In 21 days the new light will come. This is the transition that I look forward to as I stand beneath the bridge.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Autumn Crossing

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

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.
