Sunrise in West Virginia

My fiance’ and I spent a year apart while she was doing a residency in West Virginia. My final day there, I woke up early and went for a walk with my weimaraner Tobey and took my camera. The pictures are below. In all, West Virginia has unmatched beauty but is surrounded by poverty and poor planning.

I like this picture because the rock formation on the right
reminds me of a locomotive

Weimaraners in West Virginia

The weather was perfect on Sunday for a trip to a nearby field with the Weims. I was beating myself up for not bringing the real camera (Canon Powershot ELPH 300) because there were some great shots. Instead, I used my Samsung Galaxy S3 and was pleasantly surprised with the quality.
