Dale Blake Photography

I hope all are doing well.  We had a long winter, and it was great to get out and get to photographing in the early spring.  We’ve been busy traveling and getting photos for the Gallery.  Several of these have been placed in the Gallery and several more are being prepared for addition to it.

One photo that we recently added to the Gallery is a photograph made while I was photographing a race in Yorktown, VA.  It was about 6:30 in the morning and the sun was coming up over the York River.  It was a clear and cool morning and as it started above the horizon, I found a perfect position get a beautiful sunrise shot that included the three masted sailing ship, the trees and gazebo at Yorktown Beach.

In April we made a trip to the New River Gorge in West Virginia and spent 4 days chasing water falls and other photo opportunities.  On the way, we stopped and photographed Humpback Bridge, which is a beautiful, covered bridge located just off of Interstate 64. At the Gorge, we found Cathedral Falls and several other falls thar were flowing very well which made for some great waterfall photos.  We also stopped in Babcock State Park and photographed the Glade Creek Grist Mill and the falls around it. On the way out of the area, we stopped by the Sandstone Falls in the New River State Park and spent some time hiking the area and photographing the falls.

Following this, I was in North Carolina on the Lake Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge for long weekend.  This area is a great area for bird photography and wildlife photography as well as the scenic sights in the area such as shrimp boats which always catch my attention.

We just returned from Thurmont, MD, where we visited the Lavender Festival.  Had a great day there and got some nice pictures of the Lavender in bloom.  We arrived there a day early and went exploring.  We found three covered bridges and a waterfall which we added to our collection of photos.  These will appear in the Gallery soon.

You can find these and other photos on the Gallery.  Sign up for our Newsletter to get the latest Blog and Information on what we’re doing. We are now planning a trip in the fall to Vermont to photography the fall foliage.  I can’t wait to see how this comes out and share the photographs with all of you.
