Leonardtown Fun Photo Walk

The St. Mary's County Camera Club got together to photograph Leonardtown recently at 7 pm.  The sky was quite gray and the light wasn't too interesting, but it wasn't raining and we had fun.  Here are the best shots.

Westmoreland State Park

We recently spent a few hours in the Northern Neck of Virginia to pick up some special wood.  We stopped to enjoy lunch and the view on a beautiful day at Westmoreland.  I loved the crescent shaped beaches facing the cliffs.  I spotted a great blue heron close to the cliffs.

      Note the triangle shape in this photo that keeps your eye in the photo.

      Piers make nice leading lines.
