The Potomac From Harpers Ferry

Sunrise On The Potomac

The Potomac From Harpers FerryThis 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.
