Love the photos. Most of them made me homesick. I grew up on Crummies Creek, went to the one room school there and then later graduated from CHS in 1968. What a wonderful place to have as part of my life.
mckayla phillips 02-Oct-2011 23:04

Rich -
I love the photos you took using the Canon 10-22 lens and just got one myself. I was wondering if you keep a UV/haze/warming filter on your lens? Have you noticed any vignetting? or are you using the slim 3mm versions of the filters? Love your photos!
Lennie 06-Jul-2010 13:05
Richard, my husband and come down to Spencer WV a couple of times a year. We always stop in at the Y Restaurant in Arnoldsburg. Love your photos their wall, especially the old barn.

Hello Richard I think you did a great job on your pictures. I have seen you at wallback lake taking pictures about a year or two ago you was taking a picture of a bug and now i see why you have got some that is great i liked all of them. Do you do wedding pictures? If so let me no. Thanks

Hi Richard, It had been awhile since I had checked out your gallerie. I want one of everything, especially the birds and scenery. Ha!

Thanks Rich for your nice comment on my turkey image...
I have been keeping and eye on this Tom, he has one of the longest beards of all the Toms in this local flock. I only hunt them with my camera, but in years past It was a spring ritual to go turkey hunting. In some ways I miss it but to get with in camera range is just as challenging. I hung up my fire arms and no longer hunt...

Charlotte Clarke Hoover Geier 11-Feb-2008 18:00
Hello Rich,

A good friend of mine, Joann Erickson steared me to your galleries and I
wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your photography. I'm a
big fan of old stick-built barns, largely as a result of many I saw when
I lived back east in Virginia and West Virginia. I love that old back
road through the cranberry glades, and the entire state of West
Virginia. We drove that road once in the wintertime enroute from
Virginia into Cowen and on to Little Birch and Sutton. Now THAT was an
adventure! We occasionally used that route in the summertime when wild
salsify reared their feathered heads, and made up wild stories about the
precise squares of stone in the bed of the river. Most often, we took
the 'northern route' through the Monongahela Forest, past Seneca Rocks
and down through Buchannon on to Braxton County. How I miss the days
when my family and I spent time in those gorgeous hills and forests.
Those days are long gone, and I have been in farthest West Texas for 22
years in May; but my heart aches to go back. How I love those West
Virginia Hills ! Thanks for sharing your vision of 'God's Gem' in the

PS....would love to see more wildlife....catch some horses in action...or maybe even take some shots of people sitting on benches, in doorways, etc...Just keep on taking those photos!!! I just can't wait to look thru them over and over and see something new each time!!!

Rich, how did you put in the background music? I've been trying to figure out how to do it for a long time. Wish PBase would add that as a feature.

Hi Rich,Thanks for your comment.I hadn't noticed the lonely feel until you pointed it out,now I can't look at it,but see it in that way.The irony is that the whole horizon behind the trees is N.E.London,with millions of people,just out of sight.

Hi Rich,
I had a chance to browse through some of your images again today, I have to say, they are amazing! I especially like the one's of West Virgina, it is so beautiful there and you certainly have captured some outstanding shots. I am adding you to my favorites so that I don't miss a thing!
Naomi 27-Sep-2006 17:41
As your "neighbor" over in Virginia, I can definitely agree with you when you say West Virginia is "almost heaven". It has some the most beautiful scenery found anywhere in America. You have captured this beauty very well in your galleries.

The grandbaby is a mirror image of her daddy isn't she! She is really a little doll. I really enjoyed viewing your pictures. We don't get back to WV when I want to see something besides sand and Palmetto trees, it's only a click away....mountains, fall leaves, birds and've got it all.
