Great Bridge Lock Park | Chesapeake, VA
A couple of months ago, when I was finally starting to have time to get out and explore, I ended up at the Great Bridge Lock Park (the same day I explored the Great Bridge Battlefield Park), which is about a 10 minute drive from my house.
There is a lovely 19-acre wooded park where you can watch boats traverse between the Albemarle-Chesapeake Canal and the southern branch of the Elizabeth River – a small section of the roughly 3000 mile long Intercoastal Waterway. The park is located on a peninsula and is surrounded by the canal on one side and the river on the other.
I walked a loop around the park, through the woods and along the water, camera in hand.
Capture & Processing Notes
All of these photographs were captured, handheld, with my Canon 6D and 24-105 lens. The first three are 3-exposure HDRs processed with Lightroom and Aurora HDR. The fourth was processed in Lightroom and Tonality CK.
