A Sprinkle of Sparkles


These photographs were taken on Wednesday January 19, 2022 at 12:35 PM.


The location was at the waterfront in the Georgetown District of Washington DC.


The "Take It!" came as I was driving toward my next destination in another part of town and I happened to take a look at the Potomac River which from that position was wind blown which created some chop in the surface of the water which matched up with the angle of the sun - generated sparkles.  This is one of my all time favorite bits of nature to view.


I proceeded to find a parking spot and was lucky enough to locate one very close to the water.  A short walk positioned me where these photos were taken.  The composite of the water, the wooden walkway, the sparkles, the distance of the view matched with the sun light just seemed to bring out a feeling of joy in being able to be there and take it all in.  


I took a number of shots and felt these two were the best.  One being vertical and the other horizontal.  They are both my favorite.


Here is hoping you are enjoying some pleasant sights which seem to be made even more so with the crisp winter air.


Wishing everyone my best,

    I was going to say I'd love to sit out there and fish, but that just looks so peaceful. Perhaps sitting out there with a good book would be better.

    What a beautiful view. My kids would no doubt turn it into chaos by jumping and splashing in the water.

    I imagine the pictures just don't do it justice. It may be even somewhat deceiving. The photo makes it look like its the perfect day to take a dip, but then when I read on I see that the photo was taken in early January. I bet that water was coooooooooold!
