Overlook Sunset

These scenes are from a week ago. I took the first two photos at Dickey Ridge, the northernmost visitor center on Skyline Drive.

As the sky darkened, I drove toward Front Royal and stopped at the last overlook before you leave the park.  A deer was grazing there and very kindly stepped out from the shadows so I could photograph him with the lights of town and the Shenandoah River below us.

  4. I could never get tired of views like that. That last shot is stunning- could be an early candidate for one of your best of the year!

  5. Nice spot for a sunset view, and good company too. - Margy
