Upriver to Rosslyn

I’ve become a big fan of shooting the Rosslyn skyline. This is probably because, for one thing, it’s really the only skyline DC has; due to the height restriction on construction around the Capitol, all of the really tall buildings are grouped together just west of the Potomac. I noticed this great vantage point while biking around one afternoon over a bridge on Memorial Drive (this is actually within sight of The Hiker). According to Google Maps, the water you see here is the literal dividing line between DC and Virginia. It seems like such a peaceful stretch of water amidst the city and the view is obviously great, so I’m determined to explore it via kayak as soon as I get out on the Potomac this summer!
