Step back in time and explore historic Harpers Ferry. Beautiful scenery, history, shops, trains...what's not to like? (The sepia treatment was chosen to convey the "old" feeling of this lovely little town.)

Why I haven't commented on this one before beats me! It is special, Tom, as is Harpers Ferry. Your perspective, composition and sepia all do it justice. Well I remember my visit here. It was a must do when I was at Harrisonburg.

And well I remember my conversation whilst at top left of picture, with a Russian Language expert in the US military. Oddly, and I daresay distinctively, his special hobby interest was 'Tasmania' and he was right up to date with the weather forecasts for Launceston and Hobart! But it was our conversation on issues relating to the history of Harpers Ferry which were graciously interpreted through the mind of one who's current engagement was in the military and the other who was involved in an international forum on peacebuilding at EMU, Harrisonburg!

Warm regards,

I am glad that I followed a trail Ian set for me to find his shots on Three Gorges Dam because my search also brought me to your wonderful shot of Harper's Ferry, Tom. The sepia color clearly transports this shot back in time while at the same time allows full enjoyment of the textures that would possibly be missed if full color was there. I don't live far from Harpers Ferry so the uniqueness of your shot is even more striking to me. Congratulations. -Art

Well I am certainly flattered that you have taken the time to find this image buried deep in my gallery Ian. Thanks for the appreciation of the image and for the great story of your visit here. Sounds like you had a very interesting conversation. Funny just how small the world really is. :)

Thank you very much Art for those kind words about this image. It has always been a favorite of mine but, as you can see, hasn't attracted many commenters. I think the image may appeal to the more scholarly since both you and Ian have commented. :) It's great to meet a local photographer.

Best regards to you both,
