West Virginia is one of the many places throughout the world that is surrounded by nature in the form of huge mountains and beautiful trees. It is also a beautiful place to take scenic pictures. In West Virginia, there are many places where you could go to take those amazing photos for any occasion, no matter the season.

Some of these picture-perfect places are the New River Gorge Bridge, the New River, Babcock State Park, Grave Creek Mound, Blackwater Falls State Park, the Palace of Gold, Cathedral Falls and Hawks Nest State Park. All of which I have visited before. Although this list is short, there are many more places located around West Virginia with just as beautiful picture locations. Such as Seneca Rock, the Potomac River, Harpers Ferry, Whitaker Falls, and many more.

If you ever get the chance to go on a little road trip or ever feel the need to get out of the house; pay a visit to one of these picture-perfect places. Just make sure you don’t forget your camera. Even if you can’t go to one of these scenic wonders, there are many places in the great outdoors where any photo can look like it’s something out of a movie.
