West Virginia Autumn Photography Workshop

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.
