I just returned from a photo workshop that I taught in West Virginia. Snow at the beginning of Oct. caused the leaves to change color early, so colors in Canaan Valley & Blackwater Falls were a bit disappointing compared to years past. However, that did not dampen our enthusiasm. We took advantage of dramatic skies and had a wonderful morning photographing frost covered vegetation. Leaf color improved dramatically as we traveled south and east of Canaan Valley for some great fall shots of Seneca Rocks.
