Great Falls National Park Sunset, Virginia

Two afternoons ago, I decided it was time for a long overdue visit to Great Falls National Park. Despite the thunderstorms rolling through the area, I went in hopes of capturing some images of the resident Great Blue Herons in rain, and eventually hoping to capture the sunset as the storms moved out. I wasn't able to get many photographs of the Great Blue Herons as they were being unusually uncooperative, but the storms did begin to move out of the area about a half an hour before sunset. A clear horizon to the West and storm clouds to the East provided an awesome light show! Despite the excellent sunset color, this was the only image I took that I really like. The water at Great Falls is running very high, and drought conditions are actually preferable there as it reveals more interesting foreground rocks.
