Colonial Beach, located at the northern tip of Virginia's Northern Neck, is one of the few remaining small seaport towns on the Potomac River. The town enjoys a unique location nestled between the Potomac River on the east and the waters of Monroe Bay on the West. Its sandy beaches and marinas on Monroe Bay have attracted water sporting enthusiasts for over a century. Fishing, sailing, boating, swimming and crabbing are just a few of the water activities enjoyed here. Colonial Beach is also a very historical area and includes Washington's Birthplace and Stratford Hall, the boyhood home of Lee. Westmoreland County is also the birthplace of James Monroe.
The small river town was in it's heyday during the 40's & 50's.

A surpassing note is attached to this image, presumably shot early in the morning looking east toward Maryland!?! Well compose silhouette shot of the tree and sun combination. The post processing is exactly what it should be now, full size image with very good resolution.

Thanks for commenting on my picture and express yourself in Spanish, I do not know the English language and will have to make use of a translator's website.
It has been my pleasure to visit your small but excellent gallery. This shows that the sunset in Monroe is very nice and well presented. I love and trust nucho to continue commenting on your work.
My home town is Barcelona, but 35 years since I live in a village of 3700 inhabitants, Breda in the province of Girona in Catalonia (Spain) Some photos from my gallery are images of the people.
Kind regards my friend,
