Photographer's Note

Although I live in the outskirts of Washington, DC in historic Virginia, I have explored less of Virginia than I have the rest of the world. Unhappily, we generally take things for granted in our own neighborhood, except when friends visit. Last weekend, my wife and I drove to southwest Virginia, which on a map, appears to stretch out like a chewing gum that has been pulled out into a panhandle. There is even a quadruple point, where the states of Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia converge to a single point. We were at the Peaks of Otter Lake, close to Bedford, in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, there to attend the wedding of a former student.

Rising early in the morning on Sunday following the wedding, we took a hike around the small lake, overwhelmed by the sense of solitude. This was clearly nature showing off its best! Ultimately, the focal points for this photo were the unusual tree growing almost parallel to the surface of the lake, and the reflections of the clouds on the mirror like water.
