Bear Rocks at Dolly Sods Wilderness in WV

Taken early this week (10/5/2021) just off FR75 at the Bear Rocks parking area on the edge of the Dolly Sods Wilderness area. The red as far as the eye can see is foliage change from the blueberry bushes in the area. Image created from 3 bracketed exposures and merged in PSE 2021. The far ridge line is about a mile away (I think). The region is also known for its "flagpole" spruce seen in the image at the upper right, created by the high winds at the roughly 4,000 ft. elevation. This is about 20 miles "as the crow flies" from my earlier Lindy Point posting.

Enjoy this beautiful fall image.

Sorry the saved file is not a larger size, but I'm limited in the amount of data I have available over my cellular connection.

Beautiful! I visited Dolly Sods around 8 years ago to watch one of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever seen. I was greeted by many scenes like yours.
It is a beautiful place in the wilderness areas that merits a visit.

A beautiful area and very nice shot. What were you bracketing? Focus? Exposure?

Exposure (manual at f/9 and ISO 100), starting at -2/3 for a baseline, then +/- 1.

Just received this in my inbox from Outdoor Photographer. It's a short article on the Bear Rocks location in West Virginia at which my photograph was taken and also has a nice picture of the fall foliage on the blueberry bushes too. I can attest to the truth of the statement about FR75, "...a gravel road with some potholes and rocks that must be avoided." The road up from WV route 28/7 (Jordan Run Road) on the eastern side of the front is in much better shape than coming across the Sods! Here's the link:

I've also attached my "long shot" view from Bear Rocks, taken the same day as the original post's image (basically all I had to do was turn around and shoot!).
