Near Stephens City, VASometimes I like to try a different road just to see different views and find out where the road goes exactly.
The sun was low in the sky and soon I was looking for a spot to pull off and take a picture of a snow scene at sunset. And there it was! A church is often a good place to stop along the road. No one seems to mind and many churches here are on hills and offer pleasant views.
The view to the west offers a typical Shenandoah valley scene, just right for my sunset picture.
