The Belle Grove Plantation by jim88bro
The Belle Grove Plantation
Belle Grove is located in the northern Shenandoah Valley near Middletown, Virginia. It is an authentic 1797 Manor House, was built by Major Isaac Hite and his wife Nelly Madison Hite, sister of President James Madison. Major Hite, grandson of Shenandoah Valley Pioneer Jost Hite, expanded his original 483 acres to a prosperous 7500 acre plantation, growing wheat, raising cattle and Merino sheep, and operating a large distillery and several mills. The Battle of Cedar Creek, or Battle of Belle Grove, fought October 19, 1864, was the culminating battle of the Valley Campaigns of 1864 during the American Civil War.

James Brotherton
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I live in the panhandle of West Virginia. I am a fractal artist, photographer and musician. I have always enjoyed art and photography and music. I enjoy creating fractals using several programs (Apophysis, Fractal Explorer, Mandelbulb 3D) and it seems to be an ever-learning experience. I love working with the colors and shapes. Photography has always been something I had an eye for. I love to shoot things that most people miss. I love to find beauty in all things even if they are a little rusty. My girlfriend, who shares my love for taking photos, and I go for weekend walks and enjoy nature and try to photograph it's beauty. I also love the post processing (Photoshop) of some of my photographs and fractals. I also play several musical instruments including guitar, keyboards, drums and bass.
