A panorama image from the tail end of a four-day, Halloween weekend of searching for the last of the fall foliage. This is a four-image stitch of an early morning scene at the Great Falls National park.

The morning fog lifted quickly and the skies became clear before we knew it. So ended up being just a quick stop on the way home. Will have to go back and spend more time exploring this amazing area.

Afternoon Rain by edwardreese

This is an image from a four-day, Halloween weekend down around the Blue Ridge Parkway and the surrounding areas. A last minute effort to try and catch the last of the Fall colors after missing out up in NJ.

Stopped at the Babcock State Park to shoot the famous Grist Mill, but as you can see, we missed the autumn colors there as well. The rain helped set up a moody shot though, and it was still a really amazing scene.

Autumn Gorge by edwardreese

Went roaming around the Blue Ridge Parkway and the surrounding areas for a couple of days, looking for the last of the Fall colors. We crossed over this fantastic looking bridge purely by coincidence. Never even heard of it before.

Searched for some side roads and we eventually got down to the water line. Not much daylight left, but was able to get some decent shots in before the sun went down.

This is a three-shot panorama using a 10-stop ND filter.

Mad Max by edwardreese

Passed by this factory near the border of Virginia on a frigid afternoon. The grey skies, the fog coming off the water, and the steam pouring out of the stacks really gave sort of a post-apocalyptic feel to the landscape.

Tried to enhance that feeling in post. Hope not over-cooked.
