Field of Fog

This corn field just beside the New River was recently cut and allowed the fog to be visible along the ground early yesterday morning.  I think if I would have been there about 30 minutes earlier, the image may have been even more spectacular than this.  This field is on the Montgomery County side of the New River near Fairlawn.  Happy Wednesday to you.

Fog Shrouded Trees

These trees provided just the contrast needed for this foggy evening in Fairlawn, Virginia.  This photo was taken on December 6, 2011.

Super Frosty Morning

This was the setting on a cold December 2nd at the New River.  The frost was incredible!  I wish I could have captured it even better.  I think this frost was hoarfrost – read about it.

Fog on the New River

Fog on the New River

This image is a normal view from my house on most Autumn mornings.  The image was made on October 18, 2011 at 8:30 in the morning.  Although this looks like a black-and-white photograph, it it in full color – there’s just not much color visible though.  Living next to the New River, the fog is often so thick that we can’t tell what the weather is like.  On this particular day, when I drove to the top of the hill leaving my subdivision, it was a bright morning with clear blue skies.  There’s actually the top of a street lamp at the bottom center of the photograph (behind the letters).  I’m a bit surprised that it wasn’t still on.

Lightning Storm Marathon

I could hardly believe the lightning storm that we had here yesterday (May 26, 2011).  It started out quite small, around 8:50 pm.  By 9:30, the interval between flashes was about 1 minute, and the thunder booms were becoming a bit disturbing for my daughter Hannah and a friend of hers who was staying the night.  After quite a while of this, I decided it was time to open the door and see if I could see any of the “bolts”.  As soon as I opened the door, I saw a quick bolt of lighting across the river and immediately heard the loudest boom of the night (so far).  I quickly grabbed my camera, and decided to try to capture a few.  Now, thinking that and actually succeeding at it are two different things entirely.  I patiently waited, and continued to shoot each time any amount of lightning flash occurred.  After about 15 minutes, I finally captured one.  I continued to shoot for almost 45 minutes, and shot over 500 images.  I was able to get quite a few, but MANY of them were only partial bolts, lit-up sky, or even nothing at all.  Below are a few of the ones that I did capture.  The last shot at the bottom is of the neighbor’s house, taken at 10:00 pm, and it almost looks like it is daytime.  Pretty cool.  The lightning marathon continued to almost midnight, lasting about 3 hours.  Enjoy, and let me know which one you like best.

Winter Fog

This view is COOL, literally!  On my way into work on 2/8/2010, I was marveling at the heavy frost on all the trees.  I turned down a small road hoping to get a close up view of the frost on the field grass, but this is the view that captured my eye.  The temperature was in the low 20’s, and the nearby New River was creating some great fog.  My guess is that the fog was then condensing and freezing on all the vegetation, and the end result was, well….this.

Summer Morning Fog

This is one of the many beautiful views that I get to experience on my morning drives into work.  I see lots of fog hovering over the New River and it always makes me say “wow”.  This photos was taken in August of 2009 in the Fairlawn area of Pulaski County.  This corn field is located near the intersection of Route 114 and Viscoe Road.
