A little bit before the fireworks started on July 4th, the boats and were getting ready to catch the best view of the city. I was standing close to the George Washington Parkway along with thousands of other people. I remember that night being kinda foggy and with the smoke coming from the fireworks, it made for a really interesting show.

In an effort to explore new places with my camera, I was on the GW parkway this weekend. This was at Gravelly Point Park. A place I remember visiting a lot when I was in high school but haven’t really been back since.

It’s a nice area with a lot of families picnicking and lots of people running and biking along the trail. As far as taking panoramic views, I think I should of gone a little further down the trail. Either way, I think this is a cool vantage point of Reagan airport. Trying to capture the planes landing at sunset? Now, that took a little more patience.
