 Description:  The pioneering history of the Appalachians is rapidly disappearing.  GNPA has partnered with the Appalachian Barn Alliance to provide six (6) of our members with an outstanding opportunity to photograph beautiful scenes of several of these historic structures surrounded by peak of the season fall color.

 Day 1:  Horace Hamilton will lead the group in photographing two barns selected to take fullest advantage of late day light, and (hopefully) incorporating a beautiful sunset.

 Day 2:  Taylor Barnhill of the Appalachian Barn Alliance, and an architect with deep knowledge of the structural designs of these barns, will lead a dawn to dusk day of photographing barns along with sharing stories of the barn’s history. Barns will be selected for uniqueness and for the most photogenic settings.  Horace Hamilton will be available to assist with questions on composition, camera settings etc.

 Day 3 and 4:  Horace Hamilton will lead the group on a full dawn to dusk day (Oct. 23) and a half day (Oct. 24) of more barns, farm buildings and abandoned homes.  Each of these locations will be carefully chosen for its uniqueness and to maximize the complement of fall colors with these old structures.  We will conclude with lunch on Thursday Oct. 24.

Bonus:  Attendees will receive a document detailing other photo opportunities including waterfalls, sunrise/sunset opportunities and night skies opportunities. (Moonrise varies but is after midnight from Saturday Oct. 19 through Thursday Oct. 24.)
