Paradis took the photographs in this collection at the national parks and historic sites in the Potomac River watershed. It includes images of battlefields and forts, but Paradis gives most of his attention to the beauty of the landscape, fauna, and flora. This title contains little text—the photos speak for themselves. Perhaps one can still find nature’s serenity amid the urban clutter of the Washington, DC, area.
