Orkney Springs in the Snow

town in snow

This is the little town of Orkney Springs in western Virginia. The town is very quiet in the winter. In the summertime it's full of visitors.

In the 19th century, Orkney Springs was a resort known for its mineral springs. Here we see one of the springs coming out of rock. A pipe was added at some time so that you can collect the water in a container.

The picture below is my favorite of the three. I used an artistic filter in Photoshop to bring out the pattern in the stones and add a painterly look.
