Photo of the Week: Beauty, Promise, and Peril on Tangier Island

Tangier.Is.S-BlakelyTangier Island, Virginia. Photo by Steve Blakely. 

The highest point of land on Tangier Island is only four feet above sea level, and the small community here is fighting hard to hang on: The ground is sinking, and the ocean is rising. To me, the beauty, promise, and peril of the Chesapeake are all captured in this one amazing place.
