Skyline Drive, Virginia

It's always nice to walk in the woods, There are so many chances to take a good picture. I usually shoot aperture priority at F-16 and try to always use a tripod.Skyline drive in the Shenandoah Mountains is a great place to go and shoot anytime of the year.There are 75 scenic overlooks on a 105 mile roadway which follows the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We just stopped the car often and got out to capture some great pic's almost every quarter mile, I have yet to travel the entire roadway...Gary
