better wear your highwaters September 2nd, 2009
This morning was one of those mornings where I really wish I was strapped with more camera fire power than my blackberry camera phone. But alas I was out doing a training bike ride and that is not the most conducive activity to lugging around a DSLR. The waters over the Washington Channel and the lawns of the East Potomac Park Golf Course had a very strange effervescent mist wafting along their surface. Combining this with the soft light of the morning and the reflecting lights from the SW Waterfront in the Channel brought about a very eeire scene.
The photo above I snapped on my way out of Hains Point when I noticed that the Channel was running extremely high, so high that it had flooded the banks along a large portion of the river walk that wraps the island (or is it a peninsula?). These benches are often utilized by older gentlemen getting in a morning fish/read/smoke and enjoying the sunrise. Clearly that was not an option today. Not sure what would be causing the high water levels, maybe a remnant of the weekend deluge.
