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.
December 31, 2014
38 degrees F, mostly clear
2:42 pm EST 18mm f/5.6 1/200sec ISO 200
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.
2:57pm EST 18mm f/10 1/125 sec ISO 100
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.
3:36pm EST 18mm f/5.0 1/250 sec ISO 100
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!
