Thank you for visiting my "gallery." Although I label my photographs with political boundaries for location identification purposes, I feel we are all on this same Earth together: I hope someday there will be no borders anywhere, and a universal peace. In factual matters I try to be accurate, and if you find an error of any kind, please let me know right away so I can correct it. You may write me at <realdriftwood@verizon.net> if you wish.

Thanks, Corey! I am certainly glad that Warner Hall has been preserved in such an exemplary state, and that its conversion to a first-class inn seems in no way to have compromised its historic or aesthetic value: in fact, the Inn Keeper and the Chef seem to be creating a Twenty-first Century landmark!

Thank you again, Corey! This is the side facing the Severn River, and it would have been the main entrance from the Seventeenth through the Nineteenth Centuries, when almost all transportation was by water. But of course by the time this central building was rebuilt in the 1890's, road transportation had become significant also, so the other face toward the highway was also built as a "main entrance."

Thank you very much, Corey! Warner Hall is one of the older plantations in Virginia, but this building burned to the ground at least twice since the Seventeenth Century, so this particular structure is preserved from the 1890's, and now operates as an inn.

Very nice view. Excellent picture.

LIKE 56.

Best regards.

L and F , wonderful atmospheric image, best wishes Karin

I always push for the high f/stop with architecture, which is probably why my exposure was so much longer than yours. If it had been later at night the sky would have been black, I think. I sure didn't think anyone would be able to see the steeple at all. I could bracket, but I have never felt the need with this camera. When I try to match wits with it, I have always been the one who overexposed.
