Gravelly Point Park for an Airplane Photoshoot

I heard about this park a couple of years ago but have never been.  They say it's a 'Must See' when visiting DC so it has to be good right.  So grab your blankets, chairs, camera gear and lets get some amazing shots of airplanes and the people watching them.

    I wonder if I could hitch a ride with anyone going to this meetup Sunday morning - from Annapolis/Bowie/Crofton/Severna Park/Glen Burnie . I'll go to wherever it's most convenient for you in any of these areas. Thanks!

      You're a good man, Lynford!

      Kemory, it's up to you, your budget, and future investment. Either camera is a great photographers camera or a great picture taker camera.

    For those not familiar with the location, it is just North of National Airport. Right off the GW parkway. I have shot there many times.
