As spring began to breakout in late April I was drawn to the budding yellow and green colors of the trees along the river banks. This image of the white structure tucked along the dark water’s edge embedded in the yellow-green of the foliage seems to have an almost painting-like quality. I have this image printed on canvas and it looks even more like a painting.

Whether a newcomer or an "oldcomer" like me, I urge everyone to explore Riverbend Park and the Potomac as it flows by Great Falls.
For the past several years I have been photographing the landscapes, landmarks and wildlife of this place we call Great Falls. During this period I have been to Riverbend Park numerous times with my camera, but in May 2012 I noticed a sign near the boat rental area that listed the rates for each type of craft such as canoes, kayaks and aluminum flat-bottomed jon boats.
