Photographer's Note

Here's the next shot in my series of the C&O Canal and Great Falls. This time we are looking at Great Falls from the other side, Virginia. I caught this kayaker making his way down the Potomac River. The National Park Service is nice enough to allow kayakers to do this. But they prefer that people try this during the week in case there's a bad accident. However this guy was doing this on a weekend. Depending on the water level it can get up to a class 5 rapid.
This was taken with my new Nikon D70. Because of no zoom lens I did severe cropping just so we could see the guy and his surroundings. But I think the image quality is still good, all things considered.

Stay tune for the next shot and we will discover his fate!
