Sunset at Old Rag Mountain
Last weekend friends Corey Hilz, Bill Gercken, Greg Daily, and I hiked up to the top of Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park with the intention of shooting star trails. We arrived on the summit about a half hour before sunset. I guess a perfect evening would have involved a great sunset and clear skies for star trails. A good sunset was not in the cards. I had time to work a few shots before dark, but not too many. Also, the skies were almost totally clear so I tended to minimize the impact of the sky in my photos. I found this little fern garden a few feet from the summit.
