Shoot West Virginia to Celebrate Her Birthday!

Head for the hills, stroll through a small town, wade a river, or visit a farm with your digital camera this Saturday, September 15, 2012 - just make sure you are inside the borders of wild and wonderful West Virginia when you take the shot.  

If you have a digital camera, you can take part in the celebration of West Virginia's 150th anniversary by taking a shot of your own West Virginia scenery and contributing it (up to 5 photos) to Wonderful West Virginia magazine as candidates for publication in a special issue to be published in June 2013, the month of the state sesquicentennial - both ordinary and extraordinary scenes will be featured as 'slices of Mountain State life'. The shot above was taken by local photographer Denny Crosby, Slainte Images of the Potomac River bridges near Shepherdstown at sunset.

The theme for the statewide photo shoot is 'A Day in the Life of West Virginia' and all photos must be taken within the state borders, between dawn and twilight.  You can see rules and specifics at the website for the magazine, www.WonderfulWV.com

Shepherdstown, WV and the Thomas Shepherd Inn B&B are conveniently located for photo shoots any time of the year - just 90 minutes from DC and Baltimore and a few hours from Pennsylvania and Ohio.   Bring your camera and be prepared to shoot!
