The Long Way to Point of Rocks

My wife and I live in Falls Church, Virginia. Since this is inside the DC Beltway, any time we get a chance, we escape to the country.

This past Saturday was a great chance to try out my new camera, so we hit the road.

Point of Rocks, Maryland is an old railroad town on the Potomac River. It has a lovely gingerbread train station, plenty of parking on the weekends and offers access to the  C&O Canal parks and tow path. More on this at a later date.

Normally, we would take the major highways to run up there in short order. This time, I wanted to country photo ops, so that meant exploring some back roads.

Here’s one of my first shots:

  1. So, what kind of new camera did you get?

  2. My new camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. Here’s the link to a review and all the fun specs.

    Let me draw your attention to the large, multi-element glass lens and the 24x optical zoom. [big grin]
