You are truly one of the great ambassadors of this region. This is a superior collection. Keep it up in '10.

Also, Elkins, WV can apparently bring it in the arty babes department, for some reason.

This is the greatest foreclosure thread since MayDay's Cleveland one. Colorful, uninviting, cold, yet Peebles. An American Albino Soweto. A land where Tudor's Biscuit World competes with Tina' Chinese Takeout and Hardee's.

Beautiful photos from one of my favorite areas of the country. The cities of WV and PA have such a strong sense of identity and unique atmosphere. You capture it perfectly!

Hell yeah...I like the generic trait of Hills-House-Trees...or the houses peeking through the hills and trees.

I'm not too sure but I think this was the year of the Pittsburgh threads maybe cause of the Stillers and Pens but I loved Pittsburgh this summer when we went.

Keep it dude, good pics!

Impressive thread, man. Loved all of those scenic small-town vistas of forsaken factory towns besides hills brimming with the colors and hues of autumn. Felt like I was on tour of the Deer Hunter

Evergrey? Why are you forcing me to go to return to Pittsburgh this spring? Thats a totally different way than I was planning!

What kind of camera do you use?

I dig the small town shots as well, i'd like to do something similar with the old river towns around St. Louis and Ozark mining/logging towns.

From beginning to end, a thoroughly kick-ass thread. The colors are rich and the scenes are beautiful. My legs are tired from all the hills, though!

Coolness...this could be apart of a travel guide. It's astonishing the amount of pure nature left in the NE. In Alberta it's mostly farmland and hills!
