Artificial Glitter Path

A "Glitter Path" occurs as the sun, or some other source of light, is reflected across a body of water. Ripples and waves upon the water cause the reflection to become distorted and elongated. Other objects can also reflect the sun's image and continue the path, as in this photograph.

In this photo, taken from my cell phone, the setting sun is first reflected off the glass windows of a building located along the eastern bank of the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia. You can see a small bit of a glitter path reflected in the river just below the building. The reflection is then continued across the open mini blinds in a window of the Naval Hospital which is located on the west bank of the river in Portsmouth, Virginia.

This was the sunrise from my office window one day last week. I really like that reflection in the Norfolk City Hall building. Using the full extent of the zoom lens helps to give it that "world's on fire" red color.

Up on the Roof

Had a chance the other day to go up on the roof of my office building and got to see some fall color along Granby Street.

Along the Skyline Drive

A few photos from the southern section of Shenandoah National Park.

The James River

The James River crosses over the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile post 64. The upper left photo shows a foot bridge across the James. My brother Rich has been walking the Appalachian Trail fro the last six months or so and should be crossing that foot bridge in the next few weeks on his way to completing the trail in Daleville, Virginia.

Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway begins near Waynesboro, Virginia, at the southern end of the Shenandoah Parkway, and continues for 469 miles south in North Carolina, terminating in the Great Smokey Mountains. These photos come from the northern section of the parkway, between Waynesboro and the James River.
