Snowless winter at Great Falls

January 09, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

So far, it has been a snowless winter here in the DC metropolitan area. Fortunately, there are still plenty of good subjects, despite the uncooperative weather. I took the following photo at Great Falls, Virginia, at sunset. I placed the horizon lower than I normally would to emphasize the vastness of the sky and the swooping clouds.

The scene is lit only by the moon. To me, the complete loss of detail in the water, caused by the long exposure, and the moonlit shadows gives the scene an eerie alien look.
