Reston photographer Jim Kirby has published a collection of some of his best work in a new e-book “Reston at Fifty: A Celebration in Pictures.”

The pictures range from athletic events to snowstorms to concerts on Lake Anne Plaza and Reston’s paths in fall.

Kirby says the book is a “pictorial celebration of the new town, including the natural beauty, the architecture, the people, and the culture of the community. Most of the photographs were taken in the last five years and depict Reston today, as I see my home town at fifty.”

The book is available ($5.99) on iTunes to download to an iPad or iBooks on Mac. A 30-page preview is also available for free. Customers can also purchase a print-on-demand copy from Blurb for various prices.

Kirby is a longtime Reston resident and former photojourmalist who now operates Jim Kirby Photography. He has previously published a book , “Harpers Ferry: A Crossroads in Time,” which tells the story of the West Virginia town.
