The summer is almost over. In a little more than a week it will be Labor Day. Students are already back to school (Rod Stewart's "Maggie May" is playing in my head) and football season will begin in earnest. Fall will follow in all its autumn splendor -- an event especially worth seeing here in Appalachia.
As the Official Photographer for Wintergreen Performing Arts in Nelson County Virginia, I had the opportunity to photograph several concerts and other activities during their 28 day Summer Music Festival. As an avid lover of Classical Music and Opera, I could not have had a better project. I photographed some truly outstanding performances. You may view photographs of the Summer Music Festival by clicking on the "WTG Performing Arts" tab on my home page. I made some wonderful friends and I look forward to next year's festival.
So what's coming up on Paul's calendar?
Saturday (24-Aug-2013) I will be at the Devil's Backbone Brewery Company in Beech Grove to photograph The The Virginia Crafts Brewers Festival.
Sunday (24-Aug-2013) I will be photographing the Reebok Spartan Race at Wintergreen Resort. The race course is laid out on ski trails throughout the resort. Vertical ascents and descents (over 1,000 feet) will provide an additional challenge - always fun to photograph. Look for photographs that capture the intensity of the event. As always, I will be photographing up close and personal
Labor Day weekend (31-Aug-2013) at Wintergreen Resort is always fun to photograph. Craft shows and chair lift rides always provide good photo opportunities. The end-of-summer celebration.
High school football begins on 30-Aug-2013. At the risk of sounding smarmy, I love photographing football, albeit it can be somewhat scary when you see a running back and a bunch of defensive linesmen sprinting straight towards you. I have had several close calls, but I would not have it any other way. Again, I will be photographing up close and personal.
So that's a wrap. Look for my upcoming blog and photographs after the The Spartan Race.
Until next time,
