Default Shenandoah Fog

My wife and I visited Jason, our younger son, in Alexandria, Virginia for a week. During this time we spent two days in Shenandoah National Park. Amazing how close this wilderness world is to Washington DC (1 1/2 to 2 hour drive). This photo represents the first day we arrived in the park. Rain, fog, and Color. Limited visibility. Since we flew up I packed light on lenses. Pentax DA 18-250mm, Pentax FA 24-90mm, Tokina AT 80-400mm (most compact telephoto) and a couple limited lenses. Will post more, have many photos to go through.

Nice shot! I love shooting in the SNP. If you took I-66 west, then you drove right by my home (Gainesville) on the way. My wife and I were down in that area this past Saturday, and it was crowded.

We did drive by the sign for Gainesville. My son went to school in Gainesville, Florida of course.

That's an exquisite shot. Fog is tough to render accurately.

Looks damp and cold, quite dreary. But the color is wonderful! I once drove through SNP in fall and the colors were unbelievable. Wish I could have spent more time, and it was before digital cameras, so I have no pictures from the trip.

Great capture, I love what rain and fog do for fall colors
