Twin Falls

I took this photo along the C&O Canal trail near Great Falls on the Maryland side of the falls.

I honestly don’t remember a whole lot about this photo. There was lots of water flowing due to recent rains and the river and various creeks were flowing due to the excess water. This was a runoff from some stream that was being drained into a canal lock.

I just liked the light in this which is why I took the image. It was later in the afternoon when I took this. I was hiking back to my car. The way the light fell on it just made for an interesting image so I took it.

This image is actually a composite blended together form 6 images I took. I was on a tripod so I didn’t have to worry about movement. I just applied my camera defaults and them open the images into Photoshop as layers. Did an align layers then a blend layers. Once I had the blended file I used Camera Raw to apply gradients and do my normal corrections. Then it was back into Photoshop to dodge and burn. The water is a bit hot on the falls but there was nothing I could do about it. Once I was done with a dodge and burn I brought it into Intensify CK to bring out some additional details in the water. Hit save and called it done.

Enjoy.

  1. Twin Falls along the C & O Canal trail of Great Falls, Maryland side is great. Not sure what the season but it looks like a nice day to explore nature at its finest. I love the cascading water falls as they land in the water, it looks like it makes soap suds. Fun photo. I enjoyed.
