I would like to thank the Childress & Stone families for allowing me to photograph from this beautiful mountain farm nestled amid the base of majestic Pine Mountain in northern Dickenson County.

The peak of autumn color has passed following strong wind and rain; however, there is still plenty of beauty to be found.  I spent a few hours shooting near the Adam Childress home place in northern Dickenson County late on October 29 and observed a beautiful array of changing sky conditions amid this always picturesque place.

This beautiful area is just north of Pound River, along scenic State Route 611, and is part of the same watershed holding North Fork of Pound Lake, John W. Flannagan Reservoir and rugged Breaks Interstate Park.

Although the day was dominated by clouds, some intervals of blue skies and sunshine were observed along with strong gusts of winds that would occasionally fill the air with swirling leaves.

I am always looking for water reflections when 
I am out, and captured some very nice ones near the Pound River & Georges Fork Creek confluence.
