I am an editor for a national high school sports website (MaxPreps.com) and we came across your photos for Mitchell Stadium. I would like to chat with you about the possibility of using one of your great shots for a story we are doing about "10 high school football stadiums to see before you die".
Could you please contact me at email@example.com ?
I notice these great photos were taken with a Nikon point & shoot... So many people have waisted $$$ going the SLR route when they have not mastered the basics.
I have enjoyed your many photographs of WV as they bring back memories. I was born in Princeton and grew up in Bluefield and now live in NY State.
FANTASTIC CAR PHOTO'S. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
THANK'S FOR SHARING THEM..
Thanks for doing such great work, ran across your site by accident but now glad I did. Keep up the great work, btw, enjoyed the Friends of Coal Auto Fair 2008 album. Nice!!
I, like others that have viewed your work are in awe. I am going to be relocating to Glenwood, Va (Spurlock Creek Road) hopefully if the deal on the property goes well. I am curious how far the pic that you took is from Spurlock Creek, Glenwood, WV. I am in love with the landscape and can't wait to be a part of it in the fall of 2008.
Pictures are great. I've sent your URL to some of my friends from WV. Tx.
Hello Mark, you have some very nice photos here!
Thanks for the kind comment on my gallery, I am glad you enjoyed the pictures.
As for your question, that is not a photo of the sound barrier being broken. It is not done at airshows, close to the public, contrary to common belief. In that photo you can see the air moisture condensing. Because of the way a wing works to generate lift, the air density and pressure are much lower just above and behind the wing. This makes the air less capable of holding humidity it just saturates very quickly. So sometimes you can see a cloud travelling together with the jet plane. Breaking the sound barrier close to the public would be dangerous and hazardous, probably shattering a lot of glass and bursting some eardrums as well.
All the best!
Your photos have left an impression on me that can't be described by words.
Thoroughly enjoyed your work. Thank you for sharing.
Wow ! what superb galleries you've got here Mark.
Loved the scenics, and on the other side of the coin, those American cars.
Always been in awe at those machines!
Excellent photography throughout.
You have tons of beautiful landscapes, Mark! Well done!

Hi Mark - Love your recent additions to pbase. Great composition of West Virginia landscapes. Excellent.
Hi, Mark. Thanks for your comments, and I look forward to crusing through your galleries. I will also take a peek at the links for the West Virginia Photographers as well. Cheers!
I too think the Cascades is the most beautiful place in the world! Have only been there about 8 times but each time I go it's like the first time. I was so glad to find your pictures. Beautiful! Brings back a lot of wonderful memories. I am from Roanoke but now live in Northern Va.
Mark, I really enjoyed your photos. I'm a Bluefield native, now living in Northern Virginia. My two older sons love to hear my stories about hiking to the Cascades and "crawdaddin'" at Dismal Falls. I'll be sure to share the photos with them.
