By Lad Sessions | Travel Photography

A drive to view the rising on a Rockbridge County farm leads to a colorful timelapse 🙂 Linda Wilder and her husband own some Rockbridge County farming property not far south of Lexington.

#1338. The Foot Bridge

By Lad Sessions | Travel Photography

There’s an old railroad bridge over the James River downstream from Glasgow, VA, that has been repurposed as a pedestrian link for the Appalachian Trail; it’s also a great inspiration to photographers.

#1215. Living in Lexington

By Lad Sessions | Travel Photography

Pascal once suggested that each Dear Susan contributor might offer a post about their local habitat—whether neighborhood, home town, city or countryside. So here’s my portrait of Lexington, Virginia, a small town nestled in the great western Valley of Virginia. (It’s not technically part of the Shenandoah Valley, which lies to the north, but locals […]

#1184. Distance in Photography

By Lad Sessions | How-To
