Autumn sunset at Lindy Point

October 18, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

When planning my recent visit to Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia, my first goal was to get a great shot of Blackwater Falls (see my previous post "Autumn Waterfalls in West Virginia"). My second goal was to get a great shot at Lindy Point, which presents a beautiful vista of the southern portion of Blackwater Canyon. My wife and I hiked to Lindy Point for the sunset and encountered soft, warm light that accentuated the rocks and beautiful fall foliage.

I had hoped for some dramatic clouds and I received exactly what I had hoped for. Unfortunately, it didn't last. All the clouds left just after we arrived. I shot the following about an hour and a half before sunset:
