Georgetown at Twilight by Land and by Sea!

Photograph Georgetown in the last rays of sunlight and take a riverboat up the Potomac River at twilight

Quick Details

Georgetown at Twilight by Land and by Sea! Here is a new adventure in twilight (Blue Hour) photography that gives you an opportunity to photograph Georgetown in the last rays of sunlight and then takes you by riverboat up the Potomac River at twilight

We meet at the busy intersection on the southwest corner of Wisconsin Ave and M Street NW in Georgetown and photograph the shops and restaurants, doing a little candid street photography, including a peek into the window of Filomena’s Restaurant, to photograph one of the cooks preparing meals.

We photograph the lovely Grace Episcopal Church and then head down to the waterfront to catch our Capitol River Cruises boat, the Nightingale, that takes up the Potomac River and back to Georgetown for 50 minutes to photograph Washington Harbor, the Kennedy Center with its new REACH extension, the Key Bridge, the Lincoln Memorial, the Watergate complex, the Arlington Memorial Bridge, the Embassy of Sweden, the Washington Monument, Roosevelt Island, Arlington House, Reagan National Airport and the 14th Street Bridge all bathed in the soft blue hour of civil twilight just after the sun has set

The cruise boat offers refreshments and a restroom!

Professional architectural photographer E. David Luria will provide instruction in low light and night time photography with tips on composition and camera settings for white balance and ISO.

If you are planning to go on a cruise, this is a great opportunity to practice cruise-boat photography!

$89 fee includes boat ride.
