This past weekend while my partner Denise was busy leading a Meetup in Assateague, I decided to drive out to Shenandoah National Park. My first plan was to spend the cloudy afternoon shooting waterfalls, but I lost a couple of hours due to a nail in one of my tires and the subsequent trip back to the city to get the tire repaired. I still made it to the park in plenty of time for sunset. The clouds were looking quite promising leading up to sunset, but the magical light never happened.
That’s okay, I still had plenty of time to shoot landscapes, abstracts and even do a little light painting after dark. Just a few weeks ago the park suffered a forest fire that affected over 10,000 acres. In the shot above you can see the fire damaged trees but at the same time other trees are leafing out. I have no idea what the long term damage might be to some of the trees, but to this untrained observer it looks like Mother Nature is quickly repairing the damage.
