For a long time I’ve been wanting to shoot Great Falls after a good rain, so after 4 days of torrential rains I knew it would be a unique opportunity. So at 5am I stood at the edge of Potomac River gorge at sunrise. The speed and roar of rushing water and the obvious danger along the cliffs dominates the thoughts at first. Within a few minutes it becomes serene, even relaxing. I shot a few compositions and liked this one the best. Within an hour the sun had come up, the fog burned off and the day had begun. I put this image in the “Maryland” category although I’m standing in VA the view across the river is Maryland.
