Saturday Snapshot... Mt. Trashmore & the Boat


This rowboat was positioned on the grass by the peaceful lake at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach when I was there a couple of weeks ago (visit this week's A Walk About Town post to find out why this beautiful place has this name). I loved the way the light reflected off the water and I punched up the filter a bit to give it this hazy look to it.

For more of this week's Saturday Snapshots, visit Alyce with At Home With Books.

  3. Oh, what a great shot! I love the look of the water and the haze in the distance. The cabin looks nice and rustic. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Love the photo. You really should think about sending it to The Virginian Pilot when they have their yearly photo contest. Happy New Year.

  5. It looks like a beautiful, peaceful place to explore. Taking the rowboat out on the water would be fun, too.

    Wishing you all the best for the New Year, Natalie! I found the other vintage Hanes ads but I think the one on your header and that I posted a few days ago is the better one. They're fun, aren't they? I wonder how they came up with the idea of combining books with pantyhose? lol

  7. I love the way the water in the background looks in this photo, even more than I like the foreground.

    Happy New Year, look forward to reading your posts in 2012 :)

  8. In all the years we've visited Virginia Beach (our granddaughter lives there), I've never been to Mt. Trashmore. Driven by it, but never paid it a visit. I'll have to add it to the list next time. Perfect spot for kite flying!!

  12. These photos you have been taking are amazing, Natalie! I so want to be able to take some like this as well. I must talk to my husband about grabbing this app when I can!

  13. It looks almost mysterious with that filter.

    The server for my site has been down this morning (which is frustrating since I have no control over it). My apologies though! I'm still trying to get around to visit all of the Saturday posts.
