A day in Shenandoah National Park

It's my favorite time of the year! I always look forward to photographing in the fall. Too bad it doesn't last very long. While I usually travel, locations close to home offer many opportunities. One of these locations is Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Beautiful at any time of the year it becomes really special in the fall. Since my travel schedule will prevent me from visiting during peak fall color this year I chose to make a day trip this past weekend as I was showing a friend around. The color has just started to come in and we were presented with some nice opportunities.

In the morning, we photographed the fog in the valley. It wasn't as dense as I had hoped for but enough to make things interesting.

 Late morning, we hiked a couple of miles to photograph a waterfall.

Scouting a new sunset spot I didn't know exactly what to expect (sometimes that's a good thing). I wasn't thinking of photographing Skyline Drive but couldn't resist making the photo above.

We weren't treated to a spectacular sunset but enjoyed making photos of the mountain ridges.

I'm off to West Virginia tomorrow to lead a Photo Tour. I've heard there is plenty of color. Looking forward to it!

  1. Nikhil,
    Striking images, especially the fog one! I'm heading up to SNP next week. From the fog image, it looks like the foliage will be ready.

  2. Hey Josh! Yes, the color should really start coming in this weekend.
    Thanks for stopping by and your comment.
