Weekly Black & White Photo

River View


Taken with a DSLR and an 18 – 105mm lens. The ISO was 200 and the aperture was f/8.

After a long and harsh walk through the jungle we finally came upon this river. The weather was hot and our first instincts were to jump in for a cool and refreshing swim. But then our training took over and we decided to watch for a while to make sure there were nothing in the water but fish.

Now that is an interesting way to start out a blog post. In reality, though, this photo was taken from the banks of the Potomac River along the C&O Canal in Western Maryland. Over the next couple of weeks, or so, I will showcase some more scenes taken while on this venture and I hope you will enjoy them.

As usual, these photos are posted here not only for your viewing, but also for you thoughts and suggestions on the photography that I do. If I don’t know what you like or don’t like I can’t be expected to grow in my craft. So, please, leave any comments or suggestions that you might have. Thanks.

And, yeah, this is my world and you are welcome to it…
