The Long Wall by jonathanjessup
The Long Wall
A good view of this long wall of a mountain across this valley. It is called "Allegheny Front" as it is well over 160 kilometers long. At this point here it is at its highest, about 3100' or 1000m tall from the valley floor. On top of the mountain there is a flat plateau about four miles across with an ecology that is more typical of the far north in Canada averaging about 200" or six meters of snow a year. The mountain range is called a 'significant weather modifier' since it does effect the weather for the region. On the east side, average annual precipitation is as low as 26" a year, while on the other side it is up to 63" of average melted precipitation a year.
Finding the Lost Rocks by jonathanjessup
Finding the Lost Rocks
The last minutes of light bring a pleasant glow to these remote rocks. No trail leads here. A difficult climb up a mountain on an unmarked route and some bushwhacking is required to reach this place.  It was never logged and has recovered very well from fires a century ago. It should serve as a special ecological study and preservation area but as of now it is not formally protected (yet is owned by the US Forest Service which does log its forests). Allegheny Highlands.

Taken early spring 2016.

Shadow Contours
View it full screen for the best experience. I love the shapes of these hills! To me this valley looks more like a canyon. The highest mountain is in the top left and is touching the clouds. Taken spring 2016 in the Alleghenies.

Old growth oaks are often enveloped in fog on this mountaintop ridge. Taken in early spring of this year. All rights reserved.
Just posted a new short video of fast moving clouds! Yes I shot the video. Enjoy!

If you know my gallery well then you may recognize a few of the locations. Have a great week!

Thank you. I found the submission guidelines confusing. I need to submit an image to Photography APN before submitting to your group? I've never seen a group rule such as that. Even if it's declined by Photography APN it still might be approved by yours? Do I need to wait for Photography APN to approve a submission before submitting to yours?  The writing on the submitting process is very unclear on your front page in several ways.  I can't well keep track of what I'm submitting to Photography APN to then submit my works to your group afterwards so for now I will not submit my work.
