At the end of a day full of unpredictable weather in Shenandoah National Park, full of snow, rain, sleet, fog, clear skies, and sunshine — where I woke up wearing a ski jacket and went to bed in a t-shirt and shorts — I drove up on a group of travelers going on a cross country journey inside of an old Volkswagen Bus.
I was more interested in capturing the group of women sitting on the stone barrier watching the approaching sunset and was just about to get back into my Jeep when one of the women told me I needed to check out the front of their bus. I’m glad I did because the shot of the cool peace symbol tire cover, and the orange color of the bus matched the setting sun perfectly.
Sometimes I look back on my travels and remember the shots I didn’t get more than the ones I did. In this case I am glad someone was kind enough to point me in the right direction.
