[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dawn at Great Falls on the Potomac River. From the Virginia side at the Great Falls Park, Lookout # 3, for a change. We were promised warm weather, but unfortunately it was accompanied by thick clouds, which broke for a few minutes so first light struck the western side of the Mather Gorge.

Hello Alan,
I have seen the Potomac a few times but never from Great falls Park...impressive scenery!! You have captured the fast flowing water wonderfully from an attractive POV. I actually like the soft lighting even though it turned out to be a very overcast day for you. Attractively composed and displaying beautiful color and nice detail. Well done!!
