You've posted a wonderful set of fall color shots, Tom. I almost need treatment for an overdose, so I'm very glad you included this one with its interesting composition and great textures to let my eyes explore at leisure without overstimulating them. It's beautiful. Cheers, Marilyn

I was wondering when I'd get a comment on this one. And I am not surprised at all that it was you Marilyn. This shot feels like home to me with as much time as I've spent along the Potomac. I love the textures of these rocks and wanted to capture a little of that feeling with plenty of detail and a nice background. Thank you very much for your appreciation and I am very pleased I could give you a little respite. :)

Best regards, Tom

Lovely one, Tom. Great contrasts in color between foreground and background. Looks like a great place to explore. Arden

Greatly appreciate the nice comments Arden. It's a great place to explore and take in the wonders of creation. A real blessing so close to our nations capitol. :)

Best regards, Tom
