Scenic vista along I-270 north of Washington, DC - February 18, 2011

view from I-270 scenic lookout near Urbana, MD
My cousin Jane, our friend Susie and myself decided to drive up to Foxcross Pottery (home and studio of a potter friend) recently and make a day of it... stopping wherever the spirit moved us to take photographs, have lunch and explore the countryside around both Shepherdstown, WV and Sharpsburg, MD.

Not too far from Washington, DC on I-270 before getting to the town of Frederick, MD is a scenic overlook which gives an almost 360° view of the countryside. It was a fairly hazy day and I wasn't happy with most of the images I took... this one pleased me, though, so I hope you enjoy it.

If you'd like to read a bit more about Foxcross Pottery and see a collage of images from our visit there, please see my other blog.


  1. That sounds like a fun day. The photo is very peaceful. Love the muted colors of earth and sky.

  2. Lovely composition. I'd like to walk there.

  3. I just LOVE that we have scenes like this in our country, Victoria...and so close to DC! If our federal officials could get here from time to time to sit and mediate, perhpas they'd gain some significant perspective! This is lovely.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day! Love the view!


Thanks so much for stopping by... I try to return all visits and appreciate yours greatly.
