Pennsylvania photography is more than Philadelphia in the east and Pittsburgh in the west. There’s so much more to discover, which is why Pennsylvania is the fifth most-visited U.S. state. Those millions of visitors are filling their Pennsylvania photography albums with great pictures and lasting memories. The fun for you and your family and friends is discovering all that is Pennsylvania.
Start your Pennsylvania photography with pictures of the state’s historic role in the founding and building of America. You can capture those Pennsylvania pictures of hallowed places in Philadelphia: Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Old City and the Betsy Ross Home. Bring your digital camera when you climb aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a one-hour tour of those historic locations and many others. Pittsburgh in the west, situated where the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers become the Ohio, welcomes you to take Pennsylvania photos of its historical importance. Your kids will love exploring old Fort Duquesne and Fort Pitt. From there, you’ll be able to add grand cityscapes of the rivers and the city to your Pennsylvania photography.
You’ll want to include a visit to Pennsylvania Dutch country to your Pennsylvania photography. Located a short drive from Philadelphia, it’s a landscape that is still very much like it was 300 years ago, when German settlers created their farming communities. You’ll revisit your Pennsylvania photos of the museums and attractions of this living history again and again. Travel a little farther through the quiet countryside and enter a small town where the greatest noise of the American Civil War was heard…during the Battle of Gettysburg. The Gettysburg National Park is both beautiful and haunting, with thousands of opportunities to take Pennsylvania pictures of where this giant battle raged for three days.
Family fun is what drives millions of visitors to return home with millions of memorable Pennsylvania photos. Your children will have already searched the Internet and discovered Hershey Park, located just east of the state capital at Harrisburg. A visit there will be at the top of their list, once they see pictures of Hershey Park’s amusement park, zoo and Hershey ChocolateWorld. Let your children loose among all that fun and they will give you plenty of smiles and happy faces for your Pennsylvania photography. For outdoor adventures of discovery every season of the year, head to the Pocono Mountains in northeast Pennsylvania. Your Pennsylvania photos could show you hiking through a world coming alive in the spring; a summer of camping, biking and water sports; an autumn of spectacular fall foliage; and a winter wonderland of skiing, ice fishing and a roaring fire in a weekend getaway cabin.
You make take your best Pennsylvania photography when you accept the challenge of the Pennsylvania Wilds in the north central counties. These wild places prove that the center of the state is not a void. In fact, that mistaken idea has kept this area pristine for amateur and professional photographers who want to capture incredible landscapes as well as the serenity of a wooded glade, for their Pennsylvania photography. Pine Creek Gorge is one of those places. It’s an amazing natural attraction of soaring rock walls and preserved eco-systems that will make your Pennsylvania photos very special.
