Photographing Great Falls

We are on photography tour of our favorite places in Washington, DC and Virginia. The beautiful Great Falls in McLean, Virginia (DC area) is always a wonderful place to visit and photograph especially in summer. It provides beautiful landscapes during any season, stunning color and wonderful for art on canvas, metal and prints. This image processed in HDR is from our last photoshoot and we return this July for another photoshoot to capture its beauty again from other vantage points. If in DC or VA be sure to add Great Falls to your “must photograph” itinerary. _Jacyjoypals

Blue Lake Sunrise


~ ~ ~
THE sylvan slopes with corn-clad fields
Are hung, as if with golden shields,
Bright trophies of the sun!
Like a fair sister of the sky,
Unruffled doth the blue lake lie,
The mountains looking on.

And, sooth to say, yon vocal grove,
Albeit uninspired by love,
By love untaught to ring,
May well afford to mortal ear
An impulse more profoundly dear
Than music of the Spring.

For ‘that’ from turbulence and heat
Proceeds, from some uneasy seat
In nature’s struggling frame,
Some region of impatient life:
And jealousy, and quivering strife,
Therein a portion claim.

This, this is holy;–while I hear
These vespers of another year,
This hymn of thanks and praise,
My spirit seems to mount above
The anxieties of human love,
And earth’s precarious days.

But list!–though winter storms be nigh,
Unchecked is that soft harmony:
There lives Who can provide
For all his creatures; and in Him,
Even like the radiant Seraphim,
These choristers confide.

Photography: Lines, Frames, Shadows

A Revisit to Fort Cinch Fishing Pier

Photographing lines, frames, shadows and light reflections are a favorite for us and we are never without many opportunities when traveling for architectural, industrial and city shoots.   These subjects are always in our thinking when we travel to ocean and mountain destinations as well.  The “one-half mile long  bridge” (Fort Cinch Pier) from land to ocean is one of those great spots to capture the varying lines and shadows that frame the scene before you as you walk out and return.  One must not get lost in the capture of them to forget the beauty of light, colors and scene before them.  Our motto: Study the scene but also capture the lines, frames and shadows.
