Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Well, went don to Harpers Ferry to hike around and shoot: cool ruins, railroad tressels & Bridges, Blue Heron etc.

At about 3p-4p ascended a ridge to photograpgh the town with Shanbandoa @ Potomac River converginging. ~20 min before reaching the overlook heard lots of rumbling, which was cool cause it was an old civil war battle area with boards describing the posts, battles etc. I could imagine the scene. When I came out from the trees at the stop, it was dark and began to lightening around. I stepped out on the ledge, took a few shots, paused a moment to enjoy then retreated for shelter to check my shots. A couple was still out there and another guy came alongย  saying ‘the storm was aways off, but he had gotten caught recently in the rain in New Jersy.

I hi-tailed it down the mountain (on a sore ankle) and by the time I was 2/3 down it was raing pretty good and the lightening was around. I tucked my camera in the backpack and tripod in its case and preceeded along the uncovered trail from the base of the mountain o the long METAL bridgeI had to cross. Keep in mind walking along this bridge is like walking in a metal cage accross the river. I thought I might experiance the ‘tesla cage’ effect, but made it across safely – soaked, but safe ๐Ÿ˜‰

Said to someone ‘thought it was supposed to be a ‘nice day’ – he replied ‘it was!’ ๐Ÿ™‚ Another smal adventure ๐Ÿ˜€
