days on the mountain

Most of us are lucky enough to have a special place to escape - a walking trail, a beach, or in my case, the small towns nestled in the valleys and hills of Virginia’s mountains. These are places of wonder, respite and inspiration.

We spent a few days in Roanoke, not so much a vacation. More a time to re-connect with myself.

Making images like these makes me feel alive.
