Irresistible Cullers Overlook

I've shown you views from this overlook before. We make it a point to stop here when we go to Shenandoah River State Park. The view changes with the seasons, and it photographs differently according to the light on that day and even the time of day.

The view from the overlook must be the most-photographed spot on the Shenandoah River. The curve of the river provides a graceful "leading line" and the Massanutten Range provides an interesting background. Seeing this in autumn was a treat!

The last photo is a scene from the road that winds down to the RV campground. I cropped it to a panorama because the sky wasn't very interesting.


  1. That view is incredible. Terrific shots!

  2. Those are some nice photos, you had good light and the air was clear. We have been getting lots of smoke yesterday from forest fires, maybe the rain will help.

  3. Simply amazing colors and oh so beautiful!

  4. Wonderful autumn beauty!
    Have a nice weekend

  5. Stunning view indeed. I see you're still well into autumn. We're into dreary.

  6. Just beautiful, Linda. I love to visit and photograph places like this.

    The second picture is my favorite. The bend and blue of the river add to the element of autumn's color.

    Thank You for stopping in at my blog!
