Such a beautiful place. I'm glad I decided to get up at 4:30am to make the drive out there before sunrise. This is Great Falls which can be seen from Virginia or Maryland. This shot happens to be on the Maryland side of the Potomac river.
I hope you all enjoy this shot as much as I enjoyed taking it... :)
Details of the shot (since some people have asked, and others think there has been a ton of edits to the shot):
Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: 24-70mm f2.8 @ 36mm f8
Shutter: 3 minutes (210 seconds)
Filters: 10 stop ND filter (allows for long exposure), Purple Cokin NDG filter to bring out the already purplish sunrise sky...)
Post processing: Dynamic contrast adjustment using Nik Color Efex Pro, watermark added in LR... that's it!
