Most of the year, I’m day-dreaming and planning my next big trip across the country (and world) to see and photograph mother nature and this incredible planet that we get the pleasure of living on. However, when the air cools and the autumn colors begin arriving throughout these lands, my excitement towards this region becomes once again filled with anticipation and joy to go out on an adventure close to my home and see what mother nature has in store for us this time around. One of the top spots around the Mid-Atlantic is Shenandoah National Park. So, when a small crack of an opportunity arose in my schedule, I forced my way into it. And I took the several hour drive to Front Royal, VA and the gateway to Skyline Drive, one of the most picturesque drives you can experience anywhere along the Eastern Seaboard. For some reason I decided on this trip, I was open to anything. I just figured why the heck not. And since my eyes were open to anything, it wasn’t long before I turned one of the many curves along Skyline Drive and saw this beautiful section of the road, which was completely covered with tree branches overhead, like an autumn leaf tunnel. Wow, I thought … That’s pretty. So, why the heck not. I pulled over in a designated spot along the side of the road, jumped out of my car with my camera and tripod and just ran around for awhile finding images, as I played within the autumn leaves.
