Around My Virginia

Click on thumbnails to enlarge!

This is a collection of images taken from all around my beautiful adopted state of Virginia. I have removed images from dusk to dark of the City of Richmond and created a new gallery specifically for those images. Locations span the state from Chincoteaque and Tangier Islands in the east, to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah valley in the west. I hope to have captured some of the variety and beauty of Virginia in these images.

    Hi Deb,
    I am in the process of re-doing my marketing for my real estate career. I do a lot of business in our older Richmond neighborhoods, and I also work both sides of the river. I thought it might be a great graphic to use on of our bridges and the downtown skyline on my business cards.

    You’ve taken some gorgeous photos. What would be the charge to use one of them on my cards?

    Thanks so much,

    Leigh Hulcher, Napier Realtors ERA

    Hey Deb…

    Where in Va did you do the Milky Way shot?

      That was taken from the Powhatan Wildlife Management Area in Powhatan, VA.

    Loved “Autumn on the Vine”. We have place up at Wintergreen and have decorated with wilderness, wine country, and wildlife photos. Is it possible to get this?

      Hi Dave, thanks for the kudos – of course it is available, I’ll email you.
