West Virginia & Appalachian Mountains in Autumn

Come join Lesley and Leanne as we capture the beauty of nature across West Virginia and the Appalachian Mountains in Autumn.  The state of West Virginia and the Appalachian Mountains provide the perfect opportunity to capture spectacular photos of stunning foliage and colours of autumn, create lasting landscape images and memories of the deciduous forests.

Over 10 days we explore a variety of spectacular outdoor areas; snow-capped peaks and mountain rivers, hillsides mixed with evergreens and deciduous trees turning red and orange.  We will be hunting those errant beams of sunlight which illuminate the vibrant colours of the autumn trees with their thinning of the leaves on the branches, filtering the rays of light to shoot through while enough foliage remains to provide that autumn glow.

This is an outdoor tour, be prepared for early starts, late finishes as we capture from sunrise to sunset.  A good level of fitness is required as we will be walking the trails, capturing photos of majestic autumn meadows, hidden ponds, lakes and waterfalls.

On the last afternoon before we depart, we spend time reviewing our photos and guide you through processing of your photos to achieve truly spectacular images to take home, ready to print.

As with all Lesley Whyte Photography tours, the tour is limited to 10 and is suitable for all levels of photography, including beginners; tuition and guidance is all part of my philosophy.

Valued at over $200, all participants receive Women in Photography A5 photo journal and pen, cheat sheets for all photography genres covered, foldable water bottle and a crossbody sling bag with USB charging port and water bottle holder, ideal for keeping your personal items close to hand while travelling.
