Loudon Heights Overlook

Here's a different look at Harpers Ferry. This time round I hiked up Loudon Heights rather than Maryland Heights.While the walk up Maryland Heights is pretty much straight up (well round and round up I suppose) Loudon Heights is a bit more spread out. First you go up, then you walk along the spine of the mountain for a way.At the end of the trail you get this view which is definitely worthwhile.Next time I go up there I need to try out my telephoto lens and get some closer shots of Harpers Ferry itself.

Ray of Sunshine

I would love to claim that this was brilliant composition on my part, but in truth it was pure blind luck. The ray of sunshine effect really wasn't that obvious from the viewfinder and I mainly took this shot to compare the how sunny the day was compared with the foggy images I had taken a couple of weeks previously. Well that and I was tired because I had just walked up a mountain and stopping to take a photo is a good excuse for a rest.
