Here's a few photos that I've got from my neck of the woods in West Virginia.



We get some splendid colors around here in the fall.




A few from the past couple of winters.



A late summer afternoon at Saint Albans, W.Va.

Can't forget the rainbow from the very day and place as the above picture.


Early morning coal train through my hometown of Marmet, W.Va.


I live next to a river that sees a lot of traffic.......this ppicture being the exception.


One of the hollows nestled deep with in the hills and valleys.


Overlooking the New River Gorge National River at Hawks' Nest State Park outside of Ansted, W.Va.

Well, I know I seem to be repeating myself with every picture that gets added ... but it's as true now as the first time I said it ... lovely pictures.

Looking at the railtrack pictures I couldn't help thinking of 'Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistlestop Cafe'.
I apologize for my geographic ignorance because I have no idea whether or not the film was set in that part of the country but that's what they reminded me of.

Hey hillbilly thanks for adding the pics.

The first one was a surprise because it looks like it could have been one from my own collection overlooking the moors (amazing).

And I love the old one from your grandpa's day ... hope there are more to come from you I'd love to see around your area.

Here's a small collection of Whitby pics ... across the moors from me and next to Sandsend on the coast ... also the place where Bram Stoker set his novel 'Dracula' ... the last of the pictures in this collection show the small beach where Dacula's coffin was washed ashore after the ship carrying it was sunk during a storm ... up on the clifftops you can see the ruins of Whitby Abbey which also features in the novel.

Every year Whitby holds a 'Goth Fest' where you can walk down the street rubbing shoulders with vampyres and not give it a seconds thought (quite surreal)

I frequent betwen Florida and the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. Florida is
with little scenery. So I just go with my second home, the place I feel more at home and where I hope to move to very soon.


Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania














Image quality not excellent because photos were extremely large and I had to reduce them to only 15% of their original dimensions.

Ohh that looks like a beautiful place. SOOO much better than what I see here in Florida lol


The 6th picture down of the house, very nice. Was that your families or a random house?

However I will say I know where you live and there are many pretty pics from that area

I am moving here! This place is lovely! I love it, even the history. Bram Stokers Dracula is one of my favorites.

You have the best pics. and where you live is beautiful. I would love views like that. It seems so much more peaceful than where I am. All I hear are sirens or people talking...hearing a siren now. lol

Im going to google this area

It is even more beautiful in person, trust me.

Random house. I wish it was my family's.

It has some nice places around here but when you have lived your whole life here it is not so nice any more.

I will get some pics up of where I live in Florida, but they are not my pictures.

As I said earlier in the thread I've lived up here in North Yorkshire for 17yrs now and it is still as fresh to me as the first day I got here ... I think the reason I appreciate it all so much (apart from the fact that it's so beautiful) is because I was brought up in an industrialized area in the Midlands ... but Yorkshire feels like my natural element.

I'll add more pics later. Woody

I have seen that type of sky on numerous occasions. Usually it occurs during early or late summer after 'pop-up' thunderstorms late in the evening rather than around 2 or 3 pm.

It is very beautiful though. Also here is a fun-fact; St. Augustine was founded in 1565 making it the oldest city in the United States. I see the "founded in 1565" sign all the time driving into downtown.

Some great photos here, thought I better add something more interesting than red dirt and machinery lol

Not my photo but it shows what my home town is famous for...



Longest wooden pier in the southern hemisphere.

A large portion of it got destroyed by cyclone Albey in 1978 then more got destroyed by fire in 1999.

The government then spent $20 million on building an underwater observatory at the end of the jetty, but then it was decided that it was too unsafe for people to go out on so more money was spent to repair the entire jetty, it's been closed for 2 years. The company that was rebuilding it recently went into receivership, so it's still incomplete.

The best bit though is that all the marine life living in and around the jetty have died or left because of the pole driving of the piers for the new jetty, making the observatory useless...

Funnily enough the re-opening ceremony was held tonight, fireworks, concert and all the usual things.

(btw - nowt wrong with red dirt and machinery)
