Isolating Fall Scenics


Discover the forest for the trees using these


Isolating Fall ScenicsThe Appalachian Mountains have always served as a source of inspiration for me. Born and raised in the remote recesses of southern West Virginia, these ancient mountains became my mentors as I explored their steep slopes, narrow ridges and constricted valleys. Once I became smitten with nature photography, the Appalachians became my favorite location to explore through a viewfinder.

Ancient and worn, the Appalachians are considered to be the world's oldest mountain range. I learned that capturing the essence of this magnificent landscape required a bit more attention to the details than photographing their impressive western cousins, the lofty snowcapped Rocky Mountains. Instead of sweeping vistas at every bend of the road, the Appalachians are a bit more subtle in displaying their personality and beauty. The photographer truly has to see the forest for the trees.
