West Virginia

 West Virginia offers wild and unspoiled nature at its best. I've traveled there four or five times to photograph the state during the cold harsh months of Winter. The photograph at Twin Falls nearly ended in disaster as I slipped in the mud and my backpack, tripod and cameras followed me as I tumbled down a slippery slope. 

I've learned to be respectful of peoples privacy there. Once, on a back road just as night was about to fall, I stopped to photograph an old house sitting in a field of fresh snow. Just as I completed the task of setting up my equipment, lights in nearby woods came on, a door opened, and the dogs were let out. I threw my equipment back into the car as the barking drew close. Be careful, be respectful and be on guard when you're on the road alone...
