Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia.
Harpers Ferry is truly a national treasure to be enjoyed by all those that visit, with or without a camera. There is first the natural, magnificent splendor of the Shenandoah River flowing into the Potomac below the Maryland Heights. At this juncture is the town of Harpers Ferry with its meticulously restored pre Civil War structures maintained by the National Park Service. Across the Potomac from lower town is the C&O Canal National Historical Park stretching 185 miles from Washington, DC to Cumberland, MD following the Potomac River. And add to this the railroad tracks and bridges, this is a very unique park to photograph.
Park Photo Notes is a personal project created by John Van Horn to assist people photographing various parks with and without a camera. An image can be stored for the future in many ways. In today’s world, it is wonderful to be able to slow down and fully explore the wonders that surround us all. I hope these pages help you to do that and enjoy this special place.
