    Great nature shots! I especially like the long exposure shots with perfect wispy flowing water. :thumbup:

    Thanks for sharing!

    Great pictures.
    Did you capture from MD side or VA? I was wondering how you could get down close to the water..

    Great shots. The Billy Goat Trail always provides some fantastic views of the Potomac River!

    Thanks! These were all taken on the MD side from the C&O Canal National Historical Park. On my relatively short hike I saw quite a few places where one can access the water. There seemed to be far fewer options on the VA side, though.

    Thanks.
    I live about 10 miles away from the Great Falls park, but on the VA side.I have visited a few times, but never found any place to get close to water.I think the overlook areas are the only places to see the falls from VA side.

    My favorite place to make out when I was in high school ... :flowers_2:

    In between taking pictures, of course.
