West Virginia Highlands Autumn Photography Workshop
October 4, 2019
West Virginia holds a secret. Its mountains rival New England in tapestries of red, orange, gold, green and blue. And there is no other finer spot in all of West Virginia in the fall than the Monongahela National Forest. This is an amazing place for nature and landscape photography in any season, but in autumn it is truly awesome. From the fiery red covered heath barrens of Bear Rocks and Dolly Sods to swirling leaves in plunge pools of mighty waterfalls, this area is by far the mid-Atlantic’s best kept autumn secret. Let me take you on a journey to some of the best spots in the Monongahela for classic autumn color hot spots.
Date: October 4, 2019
Cost: $350.00 USD
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center where we will be meeting two hours before sunrise to carpool up to Dolly Sods Bear Rocks to start of with our sunrise shoot. After the light has given us our best shots there, we will head straight down to Douglas Falls, spending at least an hour shooting this amazing waterfall. We will then explore many of the other smaller woodland scenes photographing a riot of color before we head to Elakala Falls for a couple hours of waterfall photography before heading to the trailhead for Lindy Point and make the easy 15 minute walk out to this amazing vista for sunset. The workshop will conclude after the sunset session.
Physical Difficulty: Easy walks, but some scrambling over rocky terrain.
