Grey Dawn and Silent Cannons

Grey Dawn and Silent Cannons

This was shot on the Manassas Battlefield just as dawn had really set in and the light wasn’t going to get much better than the grey that was already in the sky. I was going to do this image in monochrome but I just wasn’t getting the tonal separation I wanted. After thinking about it for a minute I saw that the washed out color that was there gave me separation and a sense of distance and scale that monochrome…

Lonesome

Lonesome

I just looked at the tree and I thought it looked lonesome hence the title for this one. It was shot at the Manassas Battlefield and I believe the tree is a marker for something or there is a grave there. I can say this because there was a small sign next to the tree. I might have accidently removed said sign from the image because It just didn’t much for me. I knew when I took the image it…

The Fence

The Fence

My first monochrome image in a long time and I suspected that after reviewing the shots from Manassas Battlefield I would be doing a lot of these in monochrome just because the light was so overcast. This fence encloses the house that is on the battlefield that was used as a command center for one of the two warring armies. It’s a typical US Civil War style fence and if you have traveled or lived in a Southern state its…

Rolling Field

Rolling Field

No idea why I picked the title. The field was rolling but I cropped a good chunk of it out. It is Manassas Battlefield and I just liked the symmetry of the wood pile, the still naked tree, and the tree starting to bloom. I was originally going to do the image in monochrome but I left it in color and happy I did. Came out decently. I wanted to keep a washed out feeling to the image to match…

The Tree

The Tree

This was taken at the Manassas Battlefield. I just liked how the tree was all by itself. I believe it is a memorial tree but don’t quote me. After a week at work the memory gets a bit foggy. With the light and the house and the Blue Ridge Mountains in background it really made for a nice picture. There was some post processing going on here mostly just curve adjustments. I went for a low key image to keep…

Rider At Dawn

Rider At Dawn

I shot two locations over the weekend. The Tidal Basin in Washington, DC and Manassas Battlefield in Manassas, Virginia. After I shot the moon I saw this statue when I arrived. What you see is roughly what I saw when I turned my attention that way. My first thought was what the hell is the rider doing there but then it dawned on me it was a statue of a Civil War soldier. I didn’t read the plaque that was…
