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
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.
“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
― George Eliot
