Digitally edited to add a dragon
The Appalachian Trail is a 2,000 mile-long (3,200
Kilometers) hiking trail stretching along the eastern coast of the US from the states of
Georgia through Maine. It sees many travelers every year, but this one was such a
fantastic site I just had to take its picture...
The photograph itself is unedited. I took it while on the Appalachian
Trail in either the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or New York (the mid-Atlantic
area) about 1989. The dragon figure was rendered in Poser 4 against a blue screen and
added to the photograph to create the final image.
When I was in my 20's, whatever free time I had was often spent roaming
the hills and woods of the mid-Atlantic area. It provided a change of pace from the
routine of work and college (and later, graduate school) that I had fallen into. I believe
them to be a very special place.
