Geese take flight over Lake Accotink, illuminated by the afternoon winter sun.
Lake Accotink is a 55 acre reservoir in Fairfax County, Virginia, formed by the damming of Accotink Creek. Early 17th century English settlers gave the creek its name after the largest Powhatan village in the area. In Algonquin, it can be translated as “at the end of the hill.”
