That is cool!
I'm planning a weekend trip to the natural bridge, didn;t realize this was so close by!


You should stop at Buena Vista too.  Just take US-501 north from Glasgow.  Rt-130 (the road from Natural Bridge) runs right into it at the eastern end of the Maury River bridge.  The water is up on the Maury, so you should see the flood channel in action.  Unfortunately, someone lost their life the other day trying to cross the river when it was up just a foot or so more than in my photos.

I really like the colours you are getting lately.  I thought it was your Ektar, but here it is Sensia.  It must be just that early spring light.

No, it's just the old Sensia that I had to make large adjustments on.  I just don't have good luck with slide film.  It didn't help the film was three years out of date, and I don't know what the storage was like before I got them last year.  The chromes were all underexposed as far as I can tell (maybe should have shot them at 50ISO), so after lightening things up, and correcting the color cast, they came out rather well.

Glasgow, VA is where the Maury River empties into the James at Balcony Falls.  NS and CSXT both have main lines running through the town, and the old North River Navigation Company canal system started here on its way to Lexington.

Olympus 35RC with Fujichrome Sensia 100, and Zeiss Ikonta 524/16 with Kodak T-Max 100.

Part of the North River Navigation system that used to run along the Maury River from Glasgow to Lexington, VA. 

Not sure that this was a lock, as it is much smaller than the one at the US-60 Ben Salem Wayside.  It may be a water control structure since this is close to the end of the system, and to Balcony Falls.

Sallings Mountain looms over the town of Glasgow, VA where the Maury River empties into the James at Balcony Falls a mile or so downstream from here.

The railroad tracks that are between where I'm standing, and the outfitters is a connector for CSXT and NS trains to interchange freight.  I heard a train horn as I took this shot, and thought I'd get a bonus with the train coming into view.  Even saw the ditch lights flashing in the distance.  But as I listened to the engineer whistle each crossing, I came to realize he was on the NS line, and would be clear on the other side of town.  I'm not a train chaser, so I let it go


Maury River Panoramic by br1078phot, on Flickr
From atop the Rt-130 bridge leading into Glasgow, VA.  A four shot stitch.

The main channel of the Maury River goes on into the distance, while a flood channel comes in from the right, just behind the stand of trees.  Most of it was dry when this photo was taken, but you can see a pool in the upper end of the channel.  It wouldn't take more than a foot or two to cut off the land just beyond the channel, so if you would like to fish from the bank there, you'd be wise to check the upstream weather reports.

I won’t bore you with all the details here, but if you go to the link at the end you’ll find all the photos with commentary, and tag information.  I needed an excuse to get out of the apartment one winter day, and the following is what happened.

Olympus OM-2n, Winder 2, Kodak Ektar 100, and Zuiko lenses of 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 35~70mm, 35~105mm, and 65~200mm.  Camera was over-exposing by a stop-and-a-half, so all photos have been corrected, plus some cropping.  There was a winder fault halfway through the roll, so I had to remove the winder to complete the test.  Photos taken in late January, middle February, and early March, 2015.

Me too.  And it's a couple of months before I start smelling it for real.

Great shots.  They are making me a little dreamy.
