At the end of my journey back from NYC, I couldn't help but visit Jekyll Island again.  I've found good subjects there before, and this time was not different.   (MF film, #15 deep yellow filter)

For eight days toward the end of March, I made a road trip 'home' to NY to visit family and friends and then drove south stopping in DC to visit more family.  Leaving there, I decided to get as far away from I95 as was practical and drive through the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge mountains to get back to Jacksonville. It's a very beautiful road, and very scenic though not particularly conducive to making monochrome photographs in this season.  Nonetheless, here are four I think 'work'.  (Film and #15 filter)

A small part of the "Treaty Oak"... when "fake news" did some good! The tree is estimated to be about 250 years old.  ((Film)

"The name's origin is generally believed to be related to some local apocryphal stories about peace accords between Native Americans and Spanish or American settlers signed under its branches. In reality, the name was created by the Florida Times-Union journalist Pat Moran who, in an attempt to rescue it from destruction by developers, wrote an article in the early 1930s claiming a treaty had been signed at the site by native Floridians and early settlers and called it Treaty Oak.[4] Prior to that, the tree was known simply as Giant Oak."

To my great surprise I found a new part of a favorite site where I've already made quite a few photographs.  These two are from that place with a third view yet to be photographed well.  (Film with a #15 deep yellow filter)
