Last days of autumn

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia 

The winter solstice will mark the end of autumn on December 21st, but here in central Virginia the cool, pleasant weather and colorful foliage that we associate with fall will mostly be gone in another week or two. November is a transitional month, but is often more winter than fall.

Join us next week as we continue to explore autumn along the Skyline Drive and in the Shenandoah National Park. Enjoy your weekend no matter what the season where you live and thanks for reading Photography In Place.

Early morning clouds

Shenandoah River State Park, Virginia 

Last week I spent three days camped in my travel trailer at Shenandoah River State Park, which is about 9 miles south of Front Royal, Virginia. The north entrance to the Skyline Drive is located in Front Royal which gave me easy access to the Shenandoah National Park. Friday morning, this is the scene that greeted me as I got ready to leave for another day exploring and photographing in the park.

Skyline Drive - Autumn Report #5

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia 

Mountain overlooks can be breathtaking in person, but photos rarely capture the experience. For that reason I seldom bother to photograph from an overlook. This east facing overlook on the Skyline Drive with a field of autumn color in the foreground framing the distant valley shrouded in clouds provided the exception.

Hope you have a colorful weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.
