[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My husband and I often visit Blackwater Falls, West Virginia and we pass this interesting little place called Mt. Storm. There is a power plant located here on the top of the mountain. I was intrigued by the ice in the fence and wanted to see if I could get a picture of what was on the other side. This is the result. My husband is very patient about stopping by the side of the road so I can take pictures of whatever catches my eye. Hope you enjoy it; any suggestions?

You have a good eye to spot such a sight - and a good husband who is willing to stop. Anyways, I'm glad he stopped, and that you had a camera! :)



Welcome to TL.

Great composition, almost abstract. My suggestion would be to increase contrast and brightness.

Keep posting,

Hi Eileen,
Great shot, the thumbnail looks like snake skin, only when you open it you see how good a shot it is. As Wellington has mentioned play around with the contrast and brightness. Best wishes

Very neat shot. Well seen. Nice that your husband is good about stopping. Lots of good things to photograph in WV.
