We continue with images from the amazingly beautiful Shenandoah National Park from our latest photoshoot. The most striking scenes this visit were the wildflowers and trees so we spent most of our first day photographing those images. As you look out from this point, you can see the mountains and hills covered with wildflowers and native plants.
Everywhere present from every angle wildflowers covered the trails, roadside, rocks, hills and forests and with the backdrop of the higher elevations and beautiful blue sky, a glorious sight to see.
Images from natural shooting or HDR cannot gather up this view by themselves, it must be viewed in person like the fall foliage.
This week we were in one of our favorite National parks, Shenandoah National Park which we visit often. At Big Meadows the sky was amazing, trees shimmery with light from the sun and amazing colors of green with blue, yellows, earth tones — totally a peaceful sight. Armed with six cameras and every lens and filter imaginable, we literally shot until we dropped (not to mention not eating all day!). We have shared our “mountain top” images from Shenandoah often in all seasons so this is a bit different…we called it “In the Trees”and shot many different and interesting trees this outing. The wildflowers were out in abundance and they deserve a separate photoshoot of their own. More to come from the summit and yes, mountain top images. This fall we are leading a Shenandoah National Park photowalk. Be sure to check out their website, videos and activities.
