Sunrise On The Potomac

The Potomac From Harpers Ferry Sunrise On The PotomacThis is another spot that I photograph on a regular basis. This is where the Shenandoah (on the right) and The Potomac (on the left) meet and the Potomac then heads through the Blue Ridge Mountains and on towards DC.

It’s also essentially where three states meet with Maryland on the left across and Virginia on the right, while I am standing in West Virginia.

Plus… it’s pretty.

This panorama is stitched together from about a half dozen images taken in portrait orientation. The same shot could basically have been achieved using about three landscape photos but I’ve switched to using portrait for the simple reason that it gives you a much higher starting resolution to edit from. And while I always scale the images down, doing the clean up and filtering at the highest resolution possible makes for a better final image.
