C&O Canal: Shrouded in Fog



This section of the old C&O Canal just west of Hancock MD could easily be confused with a swamp from our deep south if only there were some Spanish moss hanging from the trees.

To capture this image I held the camera only a couple inches above the water. This angle is much easier to obtain with a point&shoot with a flip finder but I was determined and simply aimed the camera by feel and shot numerous images giving myself many frames to choose from.

Looks as if it is the Florida Everglades.

I agree with previous comments, nice shot & the alligator must be somewhere nearby!

You definitely fooled me w/ this photo - thought it was a swamp for sure!

Salty: This is a wonderful capture of the swampy looking canal. I can relate to this view.

Great moody shot. I too felt like an alligator's head should be popping up somewhere in the shot.
Love all the subtle green shades.

Good job at getting the shot no matter what.
