"This photo was taken on Kent Island in October 2012. I set up my camera near Tolson Creek, looking west across Bay Drive toward Thomas Point Park, south of Annapolis. The morning sun had just come around the bend, hitting this Adirondack chair and making it luminous in the shadows of the nearby trees. It was a thrill to watch this light show progress.
My camera is always with me when I'm near the Chesapeake Bay—the sights are always fascinating. I am fortunate to live in the Chesapeake's watershed, just a short drive from Caledonia State Park and Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Pennsylvania, where I experience limitless beauty and photo opportunities.
