Montpelier Station Depot

Art on Canvas Montpelier

Virginia has amazing history and is perfection for any photographer of American history.  As we travel across Virginia, we are documenting in photographs historical places and landscapes and the incredibly beautiful Montpelier Station in Orange County is a favorite area to visit in any season.  Every season offers new photographic opportunity from breathtaking fall foliage to winter snow landscapes, summer days of beautiful flowering trees, foliage and flowers.  For historic architecture, it is a treasure trove of wonderful subjects.  The Montpelier Station Depot in its yellow-orange color was stunning against the fall foliage backdrop and during the snow season,  an excellent candidate for HDR in black-white photography.  This image is part of our “Virginia Art on Canvas Series.”

“Montpelier Station is a historic railroad depot built in 1910 to serve as a freight and passenger depot for William DuPont’s Montpelier estate. Montpelier, which is better known as James Madison’s home is now run by The Montpelier Foundation, a non-profit foundation which has refurbished the small Southern Railway station. It became an exhibit to James Madison’s Montpelier Estate in 2010.”
