Road Trip Passenger Seat View

From Virginia to Ohio, through West Virginia in between.  It’s a little more than 350 miles.  Sunday afternoon and the holiday weekend travelers were on the highway.  A tractor trailer had overturned and rolled through the median- you could see the jersey barrier broken up and then the missing guard rail along the other side of the highway.on Route 77- all traffic on the  road was actually stopped for a time

Thunderstorms, lightning, magnificent clouds, sunlight behind clouds, wet pavement and teaming rain, then some bright sun for the weather report.

Shooting through glass is never ideal.  I got to be in the passenger seat this trip.  Good to be back in Ohio with the family, safe and sound.

    I stayed in Ravenswood years ago. My dad had an aluminum customer there and our families became friends! Small town. Looks like lots of traffic

  8. These pictures are great, Ruth. I especially liked the bridge captures. If I attempted shots from a moving car I’d probably end up deleting them all and certainly wouldn’t post them. 🙂

    • Thanks John. The attempt to capture something post able or interesting is a challenge and some should probably have been edited out, but thanks for your good words today

  9. You captured some pretty amazing pics, even in a moving vehicle through the glass. I was particularly impressed by the bridge, the semi, and the big tuft of smoke that looked like clouds…
