Well winter is officially here and the first day was exceptionally warm. It was almost 70 degrees here in Northern Virginia so I decided to take a drive up to Great Falls National Park. It is a nice small park that is easily accessible.
These shots were taken from one of the lookouts that are easy to walk to. The water was flowing at a nice rate. After a big storm it is nothing but a big muddy rush of water. During the summer when it’s been dry for a while there isn’t much flow and you can see a lot more rocks.
Although there are the big falls, there are also some other smaller creeks and side trails that are fun to walk down. Lot’s of families with small children and everyone has their dog out here for a walk. It is very flat so jogging is another popular activity.
And this is what the river looks like above the falls. It looks nice and peaceful doesn’t it?
Well I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season. I plan to shoot a lot more in the new year and post more frequently.
See ya next time.
