A View From Western Maryland

    

Fall Along The Potomac River

    

Sometimes being at the right place at the right time creates a nice blessing.

It had been a rainy morning and in the afternoon I had gone out for a walk along the Potomac River, just East of Cumberland, on the C&O Canal Tow Path. I had been looking for something to photograph to show how Fall was coming along and as I came to his point and looked back towards Cumberland I thought, “This is it.” This was the view for which I was looking.

It was still overcast and everything still had moisture on it from the rain. The lighting was soft and diffused, and I could not have asked for better conditions. I would rather photograph on an overcast day, with just a little directional light than in the sunshine and for me, this image shows why.

Fall along the Potomac River shows how beautiful Western Maryland can be as Autumn comes around, even if you are still within the city limits, as here.

When you come to my world, if the timing is right, the colors are there for you to see, All you have to do is to look, and when you do you will see…
