Scenery: The Potomac River in the Fall

contest winner icon

This photo was taken while standing along the C and O Canal towpath looking out at the Potomac River. The leaves were just beginning to turn for the fall, but the temperature of the air was comfortable.


A special camera was not used for this shot, just a regular point and shoot camera and no editing was done to improve the vibrancy of the colors. I just happened to be lucky enough to experience this beautiful day in a gorgeous location!

I love your photo. I lived in Washington, D.C. for over 20 years. The tow path was one of my favorite places. Thanks for reminding me of how truly breathtaking it is.
