This appears to be the Horseshoe Falls portion of Niagrara Falls, from the Canadian side. I can assure you there is no giant cataract of this nature in the Potomac Valley. The Great Falls of the Potomac, about 8 miles north of Washington, DC are not at all this grand, but they are worthy of a visit, when you are in that area.

Really nice shot but misplaced on Google Earth.

Further research reveals that according to the De Lorme topographical mapping company, there is a local waterfall on a small stream coming out of Nose Hollow at the indicated location. According to De Lorme, the local population calls this waterfall "Niagara Falls." The breadth of this stream might be as much as ten feet after a rainfall. This waterfall, known locally as "Niagara Falls" is ILLEGALLY accessable by going south along the CSX Railroad track on foot about one mile from the intersection of River Street and the CSX tracks. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL AS THIS IS THE CSX MAINLINE, AND THERE ARE MANY FAST TRAINS. When you get to the stream going under the tracks, follow the stream south about a quarter mile. According to the De Lorme Company, the stream falls about 140' in 3/10ths of a mile.

My comment beginning "Further research reveals..." is based on the clearly incorrect position of this photo at 39 degrees 30' 56.34" N, 78 degrees 28' 2.04" W. This is just alongside the Potomac River.
