  • Description: A lone hiker takes in the view of the Shenandoah valley while resting from a long days hike on the Appalachian Trail. I usually refrain from including people in my landscape work but while we talked he pulled out his I-Phone and began taking pictures of the view. I'm thinking "Those are not going to do this view justice!", so when he finished and sat back down I asked him if I could take his picture while he enjoyed the scenery. I explained that it just seemed right to include someone who was hiking the trail in a shot so he sat there as I fired off a few frames. I then handed him my card and told him to email me when he got back home and I'd send him a copy. He looked at the card and then said "So you DO know what you're doing." To which I replied "Occasionally." We both laughed and continued talking for the next few minutes while he put his gear back on. He was spending the night on a warm, dry bunk in the Bears Den Hostel and was really looking forward to it after getting snowed on earlier in the week.
