“Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times. I just shoot at what interests me at that moment – Elliot Erwitt.
It was a chilly cold Sunday morning, but that did not stop us from going for a walk. We had friends visit us from out of town. We headed to Great Falls, Potomac, Maryland which was about 35 minutes drive from home.
I always liked the view from the Virginia side, but the walks are better from the Maryland side, hence the plan for the walk.
This is a picture of the old boat that was used for transportation. The canal started operation in 1781.
The view shows how it is rested on the canal.A hole in the trunk. Not sure if that was a home for some small animals.A log over the canal that is not functional.A twisted plant on a tree. Bonding together, or coiled up together, maybe?Winter did hit it hard on this tree, and the forest in general. More like a pouch on a tree.Another view of the boat.Floating ducks in pair.Interesting tree twisting. The water fall. I love them. The water fall again.Arthur in action. He is learning to take pictures.Rita and Smriti with Great Falls in the background.Dr Rajan and Smriti in over looking the Great Falls in the background.A small bud, will soon be a beautiful flower.Its time to grow and welcome spring.Grown on the rock. Got a glimpse of this bird.Signs of some greenery. Water flowing to the Potomac river. After life, is it?Another tree trunk.Three trunks attached in one. A different perspective. Arthur called this “Tree with a belly button”. Not sure what that really means.Tangled and tied.A little unique tree trunk. Signs that the weather is still cold. Spring will soon be here.Overlooking the Potomac River. It was beautiful.Standing tall and strong.Old and left alone.I was told the male specials are the more colorful and good looking. Just easy to impress the females 🙂I was always fascinated by duck-diving. That was one of our swimming drill while we were in school.Back view of how the bridge looks. How about a campfire and some drinks?Old bridge that is no longer being used. I should be taking one of these home. It would be nice to get it. Dr Rajan and his wife Smriti were a great company. We had a great time. Finally a group photo of the walking group.
