A New Year, Another Project

Here are three photos from the Potomac Gorge.  For the next year, on or about the first of each month I’m going to re-visit these sites, stand in the same positions, and photograph the same views, in order to see the progression of the seasons.

38 degrees F, mostly clear

The photo above was taken from the Billy Goat B trail, at the eastern end where the trail abruptly changes direction away from the river to head back toward the canal.  We’re looking southeast across a narrow channel toward Vaso Island.

This one was taken from the western end of the area I call the Rock Garden, the large rocky bluff that’s not quite at the mid-point of Billy Goat B. Here I’m looking upstream, more or less northwest, with Hermit Island on the left.

And this one was taken from the boat launch ramp near Old Angers Inn, looking downstream and more or less south.

By December 2015 I should be able to make an interesting slide show with all these.

Coming soon, “What’s Blooming Now?”

Happy new year, everyone!
