These two photos (I couldn't decide which one!) were taken [on a late September] morning on the Wye River in Grasonville, Md. My family has a house there and we spend every weekend that we can waterskiing, wake boarding, sailing, swimming, fishing, and just relaxing outside.
On this particular morning, I found myself up at the crack of dawn and standing outside with my dad, mom, and boyfriend. It was honestly the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen. The water was completely still, with no tidal movements nor a whisper of wind, and a fine mist was pouring off the land and onto the glassy, mirrored surface of the river. In an age of filtered and edited photos, I can absolutely say that this is au naturel.
Ensure that Caitlin, her family, and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint!
