Long Twisting Path

Long Twisting Path

This was taken at Great Falls on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. The trail is actually part of the C&O Canal tow path that is along the river. I guess the canal was put in to move goods along and avoid the rapids and and the falls. I shot this on New Year’s Day this year. The weather was warm so everyone had the grand idea of heading towards the park to enjoy the day. I was hoping…

Cutting Through

Cutting Through

This is from Great Falls earlier this year when I went out for a New Year’s hike with my Sony A7R and a polarizing filter. The weather was nice and it wasn’t that crowded so it was a pleasant day out. One of the things I have been late to the game with has been polarizing filters. Sure, you can somewhat reproduce the results with editing software but there is still something about a good polarizing filter that makes an…

Remember The Fall – Part 2

Remember The Fall – Part 2

This finishes up the set for remember the fall. These were all shot at Brookside Gardens using my Sony RX10. When I do sets like this I like to break them up into smaller portions. I will tend to push it to no more than 10 images. This is because when you review so many images at once you tend to lose the details as your brain is trying to focus on so much visual input. It’s one of the…

Remember The Fall – Part 1

Remember The Fall – Part 1

This is part one of a two part series. These were all shot on my Sony RX10 at Brookside Gardens. I just now got around to editing them. Plus using remember the fall sounds more dramatic. These were all taken while I was playing with my Sony RX10 as I indicated. I had no real idea what I was going to get when I arrived. I just wandered around and shot a lot of landscape stuff along with the fall…

Lake Effect

Lake Effect

I have no idea what the name of this lake is. In fact, I had just found it on a this visit to Brookside Gardens. I just took a wander around with my Sony RX10 and started to take some photos. I really liked the water with the weird holesĀ and the reflections of the trees flowing into the real trees. If you blow it up to full size you can see a guy fishing on the water drain area. Even…

Frothing Away

Frothing Away

This was shot at Great Falls earlier this year. Was a warm day so I took a hike out there. The title is a bit sketchy but it popped into my head. Sometimes these things are easy to name and sometimes they are not. Sometimes an image just needs a monochrome conversion to bring out the details. There wasn’t a lot of color to begin with so I wanted it to be about the texture of the rocks and water….

Where Blue Meets Green

Where Blue Meets Green

This one is from when I went to Manassas Battlefield one early morning to do some photography there. I really like doing early morning and evening shots. I just don’t wake up early enough to do the morning ones that often. Night shots I’m tired after working so I don’t do that many of them except on weekends. This photo is of the battlefield itself. One of the interesting things I noticed on the battlefields I have visited is that…

Rush of Water

Rush of Water

I promised a series yesterday since I just wasn’t in a position to post after an extremely long day at work. So I will deliver as promised. This series might be a bit abstract for some. I was shooting at Great Falls and I just was fascinated by the light on the white water areas. So I took the opportunity to photograph these while I was doing other landscape work. I knew it would be a bit more abstract than…

Where The Falls Begin

Where The Falls Begin

This is the first view of Great Falls you see from the Maryland side. You walk out to an overlook that allows you to see the river where it turns into the falls. This week may be heavy on the water theme. I’ll see how I feel when I load up the rest of the images I have edit. Having the luxury of sitting on a large back catalogue I can jump around with my images. My mother who reads…

Warm Forest Path

Warm Forest Path

I seem to be into paths and roads this week. I took this one at Brookside Gardens when I was hiking around the giant lake I discovered while I was there on my last visit. I just liked the light coming through the trees. This image is one of those I like just because of the light but it’s really not the greatest photo ever. I shot it with my Sony RX10 which I genuinely love as a camera but…
