Smyth County Courthouse

Low light image of the Smyth County Court House in Marion, VAI drove by the Smyth County Court House in Marion, VA and thought it would be a great subject.  When I came back to take pictures it seemed sort of boring in the light of day.  The building itself is pretty impressive but the lighting was all wrong.  I didn’t take a single photo that day but decided to come back after the sun went down and found it much more interesting at night.  This photo was one of the first I took.  As the evening went on the sky quickly grew darker and became black in the photos.


Evening Frog Encounter

photograph of a leopard frog at nightThis small frog was hunting insects in my yard one night.  To get the picture I used a handheld flashlight and the on camera flash with my camera mounted on a tripod.  I think it is a leopard frog.  If you believe differently, please let me know.
