Barn at Knob Cemetery

This picturesque barn is located in the Peapatch area of Buchanan County, Virginia, just on the southeastern side of Knob Cemetery.  The West Virginia mountains can be seen in the background.  For a location on Google Maps, click HERE.  My great grandparents are buried in Knob Cemetery, and I will have some photos of the graves in tomorrow’s post.  This image was made on November 13, 2011.

I love barns.

Good Morning Landscape

This is another sunrise shot, taken on April 25, 2011 on my way to Rockville Maryland.  This was taken near the VA/WV line near Harper’s Ferry.  I was able to capture quite a few different images during the time the sun was coming from behind the distant mountain until it was completely in view and overpowering the landscape.  I hope to post more soon…let me know what you think.

West Virginia State Capitol Building, Charleston

During our travel back from Cincinnati in July, we stopped by Charleston to capture a few images of the State Capitol Building.  What a beautiful building.

East River Mountain Overlook – Fog & Snow

This was the view from the overlook at the top of East River Mountain on December 31, 2009.  The snow on the ground combined with the light rainfall caused the fog to dominate the landscape.  The fog was resting in the low areas between the ridges, and was spectacular to view.  The overlook is located near Bluefield in Mercer County, West Virginia.

Flashback Friday – Beautiful Barns

Okay, today’s Flashback Friday is another barn, and goes back to 2006 & 2007 to look at a few of the other barns that stick out in my memory.  (Another recent Flashback Friday had a barn too.)  I know, you thought that April was the end of the barns for a little while, but I couldn’t resist these few more.  Each of these were taken in very different surroundings, and each one has a unique appeal.  Please look them over and leave a comment if you’ve seen any similar in your area.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

This barn is located in West Virginia.  I’m not quite sure whether it’s located in Monroe County or in Greenbrier County.  This shot was taken in February of 2006.

This barn is located in Ohio, and I think it is in Scioto County.  It may be in Adams County however – I’m not sure.  This was taken in August of 2007.

Flashback Friday – Sharp-shinned Hawk

This sharp-shinned hawk sits atop a car in a Wal-Mart parking lot, waiting, and watching, for some little unsuspecting bird.  This was taken back in December of 2006.  I love the “stare” of this bird’s eyes.  I took this with a 55mm lens and was standing VERY close to it.  Awesome!  Have a great weekend.
