Weekly Black & White Photo

River Window

River Window

This image was created with a DSLR and an 18 – 105 lens. The ISO was 200 and exposed at f/8.

This is another photo taken from the Tow Path of the C&O Canal. About 1/2 mile east of Lockhouse 75 is where I created this image and it is but one of many photos I took while walking along the Canal. There are many such views that can be seen along the Tow Path and it doesn’t matter where you walk for there are scenes like this everywhere.

In last weeks B&W photo… “ Lock Overflow “… I gave a link to a video on YouTube that showed what the C&O Canal looked like back in 1917. The video, by the way, was taken by Thomas Edison and it is quite interesting to view. You can see it here “ C&O Canal 1917 “.

The C&O Canal Tow Path is a great place to walk, hike or ride a bike. If you ever get a chance, you must do so but, don’t forget to take your camera. You will be quite sorry if you don’t.
