Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

Wikipedia Description: Goose Creek (Potomac River)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goose Creek is a meandering watercourse in Northern Virginia. Goose Creek rises in Fauquier County on the Blue Ridge near Linden and flows north through Loudoun County where it meets the Potomac River between Lansdowne and River Creek residential communities. Goose Creek is partially dammed north of State Route 267. The dam may be portaged through the woods on the eastern shore.
Goose Creek Bridge is the site of an 1863 American Civil War skirmish in the Loudoun Valley during the Gettysburg Campaign. See Battle of Upperville#Goose Creek for details. The bridge was built between 1801 and 1803 on the Ashby's Gap Turnpike and is the longest remaining stone turnpike bridge in the state of Virginia.

Stuart had been fighting a series of delaying actions in the Loudoun Valley, hoping to keep Union General Alfred Pleasonton's cavalry from discovering the location of the main body of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, much of which was in the Shenandoah Valley just west of the small village of Upperville. Stuart had slowed the Federals in fighting at Aldie and Battle of Middleburg, using ravines, creeks, and stonewalls to his advantage as he slowly withdrew westward. He made another determined stand near Upperville and succeeded in preventing the Federal cavalry from entering the Shenandoah Valley.
Following the fighting at Middleburg on June 19, a heavy rainstorm during the night had soaked the Loudoun Valley, ending a six-week drought. In the downpour, Wade Hampton's brigade of Confederate cavalry had reinforced J.E.B. Stuart, and was depl ...More...

For some reason, several of my photos have been published in physical books this year which is pretty cool. Ones that I know about:
"Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture" (David Lemmo),
"The Great Crusade: A Guide to World War I American Expeditionary Forces Battlefields and Sites" (Stephen T. Powers and Kevin Dennehy),
"The American Spirit" (David McCullough),
"Civil War Battlefields: Walking the Trails of History" (David T. Gilbert),
"The Year I Was Peter the Great: 1956 — Khrushchev, Stalin's Ghost, and a Young American in Russia" (Marvin Kalb), and

Number of photos taken this year: just below 560,000.
