Seneca Rocks, West Virginia
The first day of my trip to West Virginia was spent in the Seneca Rocks area. A great group of friends and I arrived at Seneca Rocks in the dark and fog to search the grounds and find our way to a good spot for first light. The light came on slow and soft. I swear I heard coyotes in the distance. At times the rocks were just a faint outline behind the drifting fog. We explored an old homestead on the site and I discovered a few ‘found still-lifes’. After a home-style breakfast we explored the area and wound our way up to Spruce Knob, the highest point in WV. We went on a tour of a cave and made a few other stops throughout the day. My friends and I returned to Seneca Rocks before sunset expecting to witness the face of the rocks lighting up with the warm light of the setting sun. To our delighted surprise we learned moonrise was in alignment with the rocks. It first appeared on the right of the rocks when some kindred photographer’s tipped us off that it would soon be appearing in the notch! We shot until we were sure we had the captures we wanted and ended our first day a happy group of photographers!
