Green Friday at Cullers Overlook

Shenandoah River State Park

After we walked the Cottonwood Trail yesterday, we made a stop at Cullers Overlook. The view there is beautiful, with the bends of the Shenandoah below and the Massanutten Mountains beyond.

The first picture is one that I submitted to Virginia's #OptOutside Photo Challenge. I've taken prettier images on this overlook in autumn and in winter snow, but the contest is for Thanksgiving weekend photos and I wanted one showing people enjoying the park. Take a look at the photo challenge entries and see some of the parks that our state has to offer.

I didn't lighten the girl's face in the vertical image because I don't know her so I'm leaving her anonymous. As a side benefit, this qualifies the picture for Saturday Silhouettes.


  1. It has been a wonderful holiday for photos and pleasant temperatures. Clouding up down here though.

  2. Such a great idea! Referred to it on my blog tonight; hope that's ok.

  3. That's a great place for landscape photography!
