Clouds Over The Potomac

Clouds Over The Potomac

This is a shot from National Harbor of the clouds over the Potomac River. You can see the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in the background. I shot this last year and was playing click around the photo library game. No idea why I didn’t edit it but I didn’t When I saw the sky I was like cool. Time to do an edit of this and see where things fall out. This is a single image HDR that I created using…

Beam of Sun

Beam of Sun

Too lazy to go through an edit anything from my recent photography so I just randomly clicked in my photography library and came up with this image. This is the Potomac River as it flows near Chain Bridge. I was standing on the bridge with my camera wedged on a tripod between the railings. I had to do this to avoid the rails showing up in the images. Fun thing about shooting off a bridge is that bridges move. A…

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….

Bridge Over Placid Water

Bridge Over Placid Water

Shot this along the waterfront in Washington DC. The bridge is Memorial Bridge and the city behind it is Roslyn in Virginia. Not in love with this image but the more I looked at it the more I figured why not publish it. There is nothing wrong with it. It’s just not exciting. It’s one of those solid images that work but doesn’t do a lot more. I shot this on my A7R and I believe my 24-240 lens which…

Purple Shimmer

Purple Shimmer

The Potomac River at sunset. I was on the DC side shooting towards the Virginia side. Just taking photos of the sunset from various angles. It’s funny editing photos from a camera you don’t own anymore. This was shot on an Olympus EM-1. I can’t say I miss my micro 4/3 gear. I used it for almost 4 years the longest out of any camera gear. I bounced between Olympus and Panasonic and I had a plethora of lenses at…

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…

I shot these while hiking Great Falls last year. I was on the Maryland side and I was deep off trail. Nothing says fun while lugging a tripod with a Nikon D810 over your shoulder while not trying to fall into the churning water. There are two images here. Basically the same image just shot portrait and landscape. I could not figure out which version I liked better. When I hit the final save it’s the landscape version but I…

Forlorn On The Floodplains

Forlorn On The Floodplains

I took this photo recently along the C&O Canal. I stopped at a lock gate that I used to drive past everyday when I drove to work. The day was grey and nasty but I had my hiking boots on and my Sony RX10 with me so I figured why not take a quick hike and see what there is to see. I wandered down off the path and hit the back trails where the the more adventurous hikers and…

Resistance Is Futile

Resistance Is Futile

This is one of the new images I shot over the last few weeks. I went hiking in Great Falls on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. I had my hiking boots on but I had no idea how much rock climbing I was going to end up doing. There are many side trails off the main tow path trail of the C&O Canal. So when I ventured off I was crawling over tall granite rocks while balancing my…

River Canyon

River Canyon

Took this a few weeks back after I discovered I actually live within 10 minutes driving of this view of the Potomac River. I honestly had no idea it was there until I was riding with someone who made a wrong turn and I made a mental note to come back with a camera. I shot this with my A7R either squeezed through the bridge rails or while fully extended with the tripod at an angle back and me adjusting…
