Sunrise at Big Spring


When I used to walk out the door of my old country middle school, Highland Belle, this is the lake I would see. It is known as Big Spring. Now, that Highland Belle is the Central Office for the Rockbridge County School System, I get to see it at sunrise as I am picking up the mail to drive it to work with me. Last week I had the special treat of being there just as the foggy haze was beginning to lift from over the lake. These are SOOC.

  18. This looks sppoky. I don't like a foggy morning, because I forget to turn off the light in my car, and once I was caught out. My car won't start and I rang the AA. He took 2 hours to come.

  28. Hi, Genie! Light, air, and mist are collaborating to create a mystical, magical world. Especially the first image looks like an Indian Ink painting with light orange tint.
