Bremo from above
While heading home after shooting a project in Fluvanna County, our photographer spotted this construction, which merited a slight detour for a snap shot. It is the Palladian/Jeffersonian plantation house known as “Upper Bremo”. The house has an interesting history. WE want to go back and look closer on the ground!!!

The bed of the James River near Fork Union
This is a photo looking straight down into the James River a little South and West of Fork Union. You are looking through relatively shallow water to the river bed, which consists of rock outcroppings surrounded by sand/mud. The fact that there is no scale makes it tricky!
The entire student body assembled in front of the school to spell out (with pride) “WE ARE LEE”. It was a gorgeous day; Virginia Aerial Photography flew overhead and captured these shots:
We are excited to be shooting a photo later this month of the Staunton’s Robert E. Lee High School Students forming a giant “WE ARE LEE” in front of the high school!
Virginia's Blue Ridge
With winter passing along, our spring schedule is starting to fill up. There is a window of opportunity when the world turns green and the forests are in bud – yet not leafed over. Its a great time of year for aerial shots. And yet winter has its own rewards with clear dry air and accents of blue.
This shot was taken looking south towards Afton, VA as we headed over the Blue Ridge to shoot (an map – more on that later!) a timber stand in Albermarle County.
Happy Mardis Gras!
A rare early snow storm in October left the Blue Ridge bathed in fall colors mixed with white. Gorgeous!
The Blue Ridge is Orange and White!

Winchester's downtown pedestrian mall
This is a snap from a flight back in March before the tree’s (and everything else) became green.
We recently shot four waste water treatment facilities in four locations throughout the Shenandoah Valley: North River (Mt. Crawford), Woodstock, Stepens City, and Winchester. These facilities keep our watershed clean!

Posting another Staunton night shot by request!
Below is a 100% crop… shows that the image is a little noisy thanks to the high ISO setting.
