Great Falls National Park – Virginia – August 2015

Great Falls National Park in Virginia is just north of Washington, DC on the Potomac River. I was fortunate to visit there while on a business trip last week.

Interestingly they do not have trash cans in the park, you must remove all your waste yourself. This includes soda cups and hot dog wrappers purchased in the park!

Morning Gathering – Orlando Wetlands Park – May 2015

I have been inspired by the Heritage Rivers book about the St Johns. So as the spring turns into summer here I’m going to focus more on landscapes. Here in Florida we are challenged by the terrain – there are vast expanses of flatness and this does not lend it self to traditional landscape photography. So please bear with me on my journey and perhaps we can discover something! But don’t worry there will still be ample birds, bugs, and flowers.

These photos were taken at Blanchard Park in Eastern Orange County. Lovely park along the Little Econlockhatchee river aka Little Econ. http://www.ocfl.net/CultureParks/Parks.aspx?m=dtlvw&d=8#.VNyG23ba5BI

This river is a tributary of the Econlockhatchee River which is part of the St John’s river system. For more info see http://sjrwmd.com/middlestjohnsriver/econriver.html
