Having been to so many parks in Northern Virginia, I can now safely say that my new favorite is Burke Lake Park. What a find! It was a perfect location for a Fall Photography Shoot as the leaves were just turning colors to yellow, orange and red. Mind you, it doesn’t have as many wide open spaces and the ones that you find are private and are for golfers only but… and its a big but! The path you walk is right beside the lake so its calming and energizing at the same time. The whole experience of photographing right beside the water was wonderful. Below are some photos of the shoot.
Be prepared to walk more than a mile for this Family Photoshoot. The good news is that it doesn’t get tiring because the view of the lake is just so beautiful and calming. One thing you need to watch out for are bikers. The path is shared between bikers and walkers. Its not the most ideal situation but hey, its gorgeous and as a photographer, I think its worth it!
Burke Lake Park is located at Ox Road at Fairfax Station and is in close proximity to Fairfax, Oakton, Annandale and its about a 30 minute drive from Reston, Northern VA.
