Three photos, saved from the mediocre light of a cloudy day by a B&W conversion:
It's just to the west of the District, about 15 minutes from where I am. Along the C and O Canal. A great place to find copperhead snakes!This must be such an incredible place, and it's just outside of DC - am I correct? I believe another member was just out there recently taking some photos.
Really like those reflections in your second shot!
Plus, as I recall, you can still take a boat ride up the canal from Great Falls. Or at least you could the last time I was there years ago. It gets a little buggy there for me, I must admit.These were taken on the Maryland side, where the trail to the view of the falls goes over bridges over several fast-flowing side branches of the Potomac. I wasn't able to get a good picture of the falls themselves (again, "meh" light), or of any of the dozen or so blue herons that were fishing there (left my long lenses at home). It was a fun walk anyway, with my visiting parents and my (very sleepy) baby son; I'd recommend it to anyone visiting the DC area.
