March 1 – April 29, 2018
In 2014, I began a four-year project to capture the beauty of the C&O Canal National Historical Park in all four seasons. With its 184.5-mile length from Washington, DC through the canal towns to Cumberland, MD, the park offers a wide variety of photography subjects. The historic structures of the Great Falls Tavern, lockhouses and canal locks; wildlife; the Great Falls of the Potomac, and the simple beauty of the canal and towpath provide rich opportunities for photography throughout the year. The constantly changing weather and lighting conditions in the park bring new opportunities to see the elegance of the park on a daily basis. For those of us fortunate to have this historically exquisite park – the 12th most visited park in the national park system – virtually in our backyards, the C&O represents a haven for photographers and non-photographers alike. I hopes that you enjoy the images displayed in this exhibit as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
