Default Great Falls National Park (VA) - in early morning fog

Hi, all

Went to the Great Falls NP on the Virginia side early this morning - attached are a couple of shots.

The first is early morning with the fog starting to lift. The second is later, and the reason George Washington founded the Potowmack Canal Company - it was tough to get goods down the Potomac River in those days...

Thanks, Gary

I don't get out to shoot very often. These were fun.

Where are the kayakers? When we were there the place was thick with them. Probably too early and too foggy for them! It's a great place to photograph at any time though. Your shots are great.

Nice shots Ted. I love those misty morning ones.

Nice shots Ted. It almost looks like you were standing in the middle of the river when you took them. Good to see you post, haven't seen many shots from you recently.

Hi Ted,

Amazing what lighting and fog can do to completely change the feel of a landscape scene- each worthy of being framed and displayed.

Although, I do prefer the 1st.

It sure looks like it but apparently not. The ice didn't reach that area - the USGS says the rocks are native and were exposed when the river carved down that far.
