Zephyr service in the South…

April 13th, 2017

The N&W 611 steam locomotive did some trips in early April around North Carolina and Virginia. Here’s a shot of the #611 rolling north through the signals at Lexington, NC. More photos of the trips can be found here. As well, the train had several vintage passenger cars of note, from the California Zephyr was the Silver Solarium and Silver Lariat, seen here.

Shock and Awe…

March 9th, 2017

A tornadic storm swept across western Lincoln county and Burke county last week.  Here’s a view as it rolls over South Mountain State park…South Mountain is covered in rain, but the leading edge of the storm strikes terror across the nearby hilltops…

 

Barn moon rising…

I took a similar photo a few years ago, but a mis-set ISO really didn’t help the photos much.  However, I revisited the location and place, and this time even the clouds improved!

Fog on the Pine…

December 12th, 2016

I really wanted to be able to send the drone up on a foggy morning to see what it was like…and was pretty amazed!  Of course, you have to be careful and not fly it away from where you took off or you might never see it again.  Anyhow, both the photos below were taken from the same spot, about 20 min apart.

A pair of GSMR locomotives cross the Tuckasegee River near Ela, NC. The Smoky Mountains live up to their name as wildfires burn in the distance.

One more from Oak Island…

Taken by the drone…the man is the mayor (if I remember correctly) of Oak Island, helping to repair the lighthouse after Hurricane Matthew.

Wildfires in the West…

November 9th, 2016

The Mountains of Western NC were on fire this fall from the lack of rainfall. Normally the fall is usually pretty good for having some raining days…but not this year. It just stayed dry for most of the early autumn, and if it hadn’t been for the hurricane in October, we would have went longer. Here is a photo from the wildfires on South Mountain State Park.
