I've never been drawn to the Appalachians, but these are stunning and make me wonder if I am missing something!

All 3 images are fantastic. I hadn't noticed the light in the cabin door/windows, nice touch!

Great shots. I really like #1, and I think #2 would be the perfect location for a "4 seasons" type of shot. I could just picture that cabin covered with a fresh snowfall or surrounded by fall colours.

I like the tree area in #3, but the left side seems a bit cluttered to me. Maybe a tighter comp using that cascade to the right would look cleaner? Minor nitpicking though :P

Steve these shots are awesome, especially #1, then again #2 is great and love #3. I can't count the times that I shot Carters cabin and the shots were just lacking something like a light in the cabin window and doorway. That really adds a warmth to the shot and gives it a real feeling of it not being an abandoned cabin. What focal lengths did you use for #1 and #2? Kinda makes me want to load the gear into the car and head up that way before the hoards of summer tourists. Great shots and great compositon.

Great set, Steve! The water action in #3 is very nice, but #1 is most impressive: the gorge, the greens, the warm light...bravo

Amazing work!
1 and 2 are a bit strong colour-wise but still natural enough.
I love 3. The darker tones are beautiful.

Thanks so much for all the comments and feedback! I really do appreciate every word

@Justin - I have to say I did struggle with that comp when I was in the field. When the left side goes, it does seem to lose something in my opinion. It's a tricky shot compositionally, to be sure. Still don't know if I'm 100% happy with it, but time will tell.

@Capt Don - All images were with a D800e. Lindy Point was a 14-24 @15mm -it was pretty wide. The cabin was actually a 24-70 at 62mm - I wanted to use the longest focal length I could to keep the cabin as large as possible in the frame (it was less than half that size at 24mm when I was closer to the trees for the same shot). I'd have gone even longer, but there was a slight hill and if I stepped back I didn't have the vertical perspective I was after. The Tremont shot was 14-24 @18mm with a Fotodiox Polarizer adapter. Gotta keep those reflections down on the leaves and rocks!

@ plateaulight - - they actually weren't too bad - Cabin was the worst.

Again, thanks so much to everyone who is posting comments

Actually, I'm hearing/seeing 8 or 9 Western Maryland Rwy. steam engines pulling/pushing a coal train up the Black Fork grade visible on the right hillside in #1. It's a great rail/trail now but there are rumors of logging in the canyon. Nice work Steve!

Thanks for sharing these three dynamic images. The colors are very vibrant and the composition is excellent. I love # 1 & #2...my personal taste for #3 would be for the water to look smoother. Never-the-less, it is a great image - I like the angle of which you took the image.

Cabin one took me til the second viewing to realize how cool it was. Nice work. The brightness of the forest/fg almost looks too much compared to the sky. But crazy light you have there. Nice series
