It has been a pretty crazy few weeks(months!) since my last post!  I've been around the state and then some!  Click any image to be taken to the respective gallery to view more images.

I'll start with a few images from the super awesome Channels of Virginia!  This place is located near Abingdon Virginia.  It is a pretty unimpressive 3.5 mile hike up to the top, but once you get to the top of Clinch Mountain it gets AWESOME!  There are HUUUUUGE rocks that form channels you can walk on top of and in between.

I made a couple stops up on Dragons Tooth, once during the day and once well before sunrise after a hike in the dark!  The first trip I made up there I took my new Irix Firefly 15mm and was really able to get nice compositions of the rocks on top.

A few days after that trip I hit the trail early to make it up to Dragon's Tooth by sunrise.   I did not get the color I was hoping for but was able to capture some nice foggy scenes.

I also made it up to the Tinker Cliffs overlook which is WELL worth the hike!  I have a plan to haul some water and a hammock and stay the night up on top of the cliffs soon!
