Back to Blackwater Falls

It's autumn and I returned to Blackwater Falls in West Virginia. The fall foliage was lovely and I captured some great scenic shots while I was there. Here are some of my favorites.

This one is of Blackwater Falls. Low clouds and light rain brought out some great color in the fall foliage around the falls.

In this one, you can see the low clouds creeping through Blackwater Canyon.

I've taken some photos of the Falls of Elakala before. It's a beautiful, tranquil spot. This time I figured I'd include the bridge over the falls.  The Bridge and the Falls of ElakalaThe Bridge and the Falls of ElakalaAutum at the Falls of Elakala in Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia.

I got up early to shoot the sunrise from Pendleton Overlook. My view of the sunrise ended up being obstructed, so I turned away and shot the other direction. In this one you can see the full moon is still out while the clouds start to light up with the first rays of the morning sun.

Lindy Point is one of my favorite places in Blackwater Falls State Park. My luck with the clouds seemed to hold. I like this one quite a bit, along with the following photo. After the sun dropped below the horizon, the clouds turned purple.
