The Edge of Jamestowne, Virginia

Near colonial Williamsburg is Historic Jamestowne, one of the earliest European settlements in North America.  I got to spend a few days there about a year ago with my family.  We spent most of our time walking around, looking at outdoor exhibits and walking around the town of Williamsburg and the site of Jamestowne.

Today's photo is a view not of Jamestowne but the view across the James River from one of the on-site museum buildings.  I was waiting for one of the kids to catch up when I noticed the large trees, backlit by the sun and framed by the high cirrus clouds.  How could you not notice this, right?  I'd been waiting and looking for such a shot for a while - large, stately trees out in the open where you can get a good, unobstructed look at them.  This shot is handheld (no tripods in most of these places) but that's ok.  I really like the way it looks, for a long time this was one of my favorites.  Hope you like it too.

I've added others to the favorite image list, btw.    Those will hopefully get online in time.
