SkyWatch at the Byrd Visitor Center: SNP




Wednesday morning found Willard & I once again in Shenandoah National Park.

I shot this photograph of the Byrd Visitor Center located at Big Meadows as the first hints of dawn’s arrival began to show in the eastern sky behind the building.

The lights on the building warm up the photo. Love the streaks of clouds.

Conditions in this photo- well below freezing, some snow lying about, windy & partly cloudy.

I used a 20 second exposure which allowed the cloud movement to "paint" the sky.

Salty, I hope you and your family had a great Thanksiving. Sorry I am a day late with that but I had to work yesterday.

I am glad you liked the muskrat photos and thanks for the good comments. I do know I was lucky, it's about time.

Now go out and photograph some deer before the hunters push them deep into the mountains on Monday.

You have some amazing animal shots. you are very talented and you must also be very patient. I don't often get up early enough for a sunrise, but this time of year it is easier where I live. I invite you to some see my sunrise and sunset from Coastal BC. -- Margy

I left a comment for you on this earlier but I do not see it. Maybe I pressed a wrong button somewhere. :)

I love these soft colors of dawn. It is a beautiful pic Coy.
