West Virginia – New River Gorge Photo Meet | October 2007

on

On this trip I ended up having more fun taking everyone around to the various spots we had scoped out in September.  I didn’t take as many pictures because I felt like I had already gotten some good ones from the last trip.  Due to the drought, we were expecting more colors in the foliage, but it looks like November is truly the time to visit Southern West Virginia for fall colors.

Okay…Steve wasn’t really climbing a huge cliff…It was about 9 feet high.  Playing with camera angles is fun!

That image is a major crop of the image below.  It was shot with a 1DMKII and 300mm f2.8L IS.  If I had used extension tubes, I could have gotten much closer and not had to crop later.

Trying to catch sunset in the mountains can be difficult.  Next time, I’ll go to higher ground.  Probably should have cropped this shot.
