A photo of Chapters Book Store that I captured while walking around in the snow storm in the early morning hours of January 22, 2016. I had woken up early to try and get some photos of town in the snow before too much traffic came through. It was cold and peaceful and a wonderful time.
One of my favorite astrophotography works that I’ve done, this photo is actually a two photo panoramic composite. It is taken from Vine St. in Galax looking back towards the Pipers Gap area. Aside from the fog lying beyond the trees, it also contains two prominent astronomy icons. The Andromeda Galaxy in the upper center and The Pleiades just above the trees.
