Dranesville Tavern was built in 1823. In 1865, the Alexandria Gazette described Dranesville Tavern as "one of the finest roadside inns in the State of Virginia." That tradition of excellence and hospitality continues today at this beautifully restored National Historic Landmark.

I frequent Smashing Magazine on a daily basis for inspiration and today I saw they had a post for "35 Fantastic HDR Pictures", so I clicked the link scrolled down and saw my picture, one of my first HDR's is second on the list.

 

Smashing Magazine, I heart you.

Bluesman Dixon Hunt and wife at home in Dranesville, Ga. Late 1960's. I also recorded some songs by him for record albums, some of which has been re-released on Fat Possum Records, in their George Mitchell Collection.

 

From "Southern Spaces":

 

"According to Bruce Bastin, the parochial nature of Hunt's performing territory--little more than sixty miles end to end--was typical of Southeast blues musicians. Dixon Hunt taught Cliff Scott to play." _Steve Bransford

Taken on a rainy day at Great Falls Park in Fairfax County, Virginia. The river is the Potomac, as it crosses the fall line. The land on the left side and in the background is within Fairfax County; the land on the right bank of the river is within Montgomery County, Maryland.

 

This is a panorama, not a crop. I used 3 overlapping angles from 1 tripod position, and shot 3 exposures at each angle, each spaced at 1 2/3. I processed the HDR for each angle first using PhotoMatrix. Then, I used PhotoStitch to combine the three resulting composite images into one panorama, manually providing the focal length of 70 mm. Best viewed large.

Great Falls Park is part of the George Washington Memorial Parkway, a United States National Park spanning parts of Virginia, the District of Columbia and Maryland. Great Falls is a series of drops in elevation along the Potomac River.

So at a local mosque here a large group of various Christians came to make sure that a large group of muslims felt welcome. It was a wonderful scene. (photo happily taken by an atheist)

Great Falls is a natural set of waterfalls on the Potomac River. This photograph was taken from the Virginia side of the falls, facing Maryland. The falls are accessible from Virginia via Great Falls Park, part of the George Washington Memorial Parkway, administered by the National Park Service.

 

The falls are part of a greater geological phenomenon known as the "fall line," which divides the Appalachian piedmont from the Atlantic coastal plain. The fall line runs south from New York, closely paralleling Interstate 95, for hundreds of miles. Where the line crosses a river, there are invariably waterfalls present, as a result of the abrupt change in rock composition and elevation. An example of another such waterfall is Great Falls on the Passaic River in Paterson, New Jersey.

 

It is not a coincidence that Interstate 95 runs along the fall line. A number of the major cities that the highway connects have developed along the line, as the line typically marks the point beyond which the rivers are no longer navigable from the Ocean. Cities that developed along the fall line include Trenton (NJ), Philadelphia (PA), Washington (DC), Fredericksburg (VA), Richmond (VA), Petersburg (VA), Roanoke Rapids (NC), Raleigh (NC), Fayetteville (NC), Columbia (SC), Augusta (GA), Macon (GA), Columbus (GA), Montgomery (AL) and Tuscaloosa (AL).
