Sunrise at Great Falls State Park

September 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

During the end of the heat and humidity streak that seems to hover over the Washington D.C. Metro area in August, I ventured to Great Falls State Park in Virginia to see if I could find some fire in the sky and cascades over the rocks.  I didn't find much in terms of a spectacular dawning, but I did find lots of condensation on my equipment.  There was a decent amount of fog condensing in the air above the water.  At first, I thought there might be potential for some eerie and haunting looking images, but the only thing produced that morning was a slight case of dehydration. Those dog days of summer are long gone.  Mother Nature has turned the temperature on the thermostat down and started the fading of all the emerald hues in our scenery.

I'm going to venture back to Great Falls State Park to see what the cooler autumn mornings have in store soon.  Then it's off to Canaan Valley State Park in West Virginia, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, Ricketts Glenn State Park in Pennsylvania, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee by the end of October.  It's going to be a busy month!
