It’s been a while since we’ve had such a strong hurricane pass so close to us here in Central Florida. Matthew was a category 4 storm last Wednesday as it approached our east coast and had just roared through Haiti with devastating effects. Luckily, it veered a little further away and winds were lower than forecast when it hit here. We had strong rain and winds, power flickers, trees down, and some damage in our area on the North East side of Orlando. But we were spared most of the dire effects that we worried about. Friends from New Smyrna Beach stayed with us and they too reported very few problems from the storm, although they lost power for a day.
Anyway, I wasn’t able or even motivated to do any photography last week. So instead I’ll show you an image that has nothing to do with storms, from our recent trip Shenandoah.
Bear Fence Mountain Panorama – This is part of the vista from the top of Bearfence Mountain in Shenandoah National Park. It’s one of the few places there where you get a true 360 degree view. This image is a mutli-frame panorama stitched together in Lightroom.
Scrambling up this rock pile on the top of the mountain, I had to acknowledge that my 64-year-old knees aren’t as good as I thought. But I did make to the top and the view was awesome.
I hope all of you also came through hurricane Matthew ok. If not, our thoughts and prayers are with you. And thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. If possible – go make some photos!
