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

Great Falls, A Destination for Recreation

At Great Falls, the Potomac River builds up speed and force as it falls over a series of steep, jagged rocks and flows through the narrow Mather Gorge.  From the Paleo-Indians in 10,500BC to today, Great Falls have been a place for man’s activity, sport, nature, life and photography.  See the stunning historical chronology of Great Falls here.

“The parks do not belong to one state or to one section…. The Yosemite, the Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon are national properties in which every citizen has a vested interest; they belong as much to the man of Massachusetts, of Michigan, of Florida, as they do to the people of California, of Wyoming, and of Arizona.”

“Who will gainsay that the parks contain the highest potentialities of national pride, national contentment, and national health? A visit inspires love of country; begets contentment; engenders pride of possession; contains the antidote for national restlessness…. He is a better citizen with a keener appreciation of the privilege of living here who has toured the national parks.” ___ Stephen T. Mather, NPS Director, 1917-1929
