Colorful damselflies roam the shoreline of the Rappahannock River in Virginia.  I photographed this one during a summer canoe trip.

Geothermal Features

photograph of geothermal features near Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park

The constant bubbling of mineral infused, hot water leaves colorful, thin layers of sediment throughout the geothermal areas of Yellowstone National Park.  The hot spring in the foreground of this photo reminds me of a lunar crater while the colorful cliff and distant steam behind it add to the other-worldliness of the scene.

Yellowstone Traffic Jam

We were traveling north from the Old Faithful area in Yellowstone National Park when we encountered three bison traffic jams in the space of about 1 mile.  The kids thought it was hilarious to watch them walking down the road, holding up traffic.  The bison took their time and would occasionally stop to look at a vehicle as if the cars were out of place.


Cyclist on Riverside Drive

photograph of an individual cyclist on Riverside DriveI photographed this cyclist on Riverside Drive during the Tour de Richmond in October.  Positioned across the road with a view of the river, I panned the camera with the passing cyclist to capture this image.


River Cairns

photo of rocks stacked in the James River

During a walk along the James River I noticed these cairns out among the natural rock formations.  Perhaps they were put their by a paddler as a way to mark their take out point?


Ravages of Time

The old brick and concrete bridge piers stand across the James River as a testimony to the ravages of time.  They once provided safe and easy passage across the river and now serve merely as roosts for water fowl and baron outcroppings for pioneering vegetation.
