"I live only a block away from the Chesapeake Bay, between the Lesner Bridge and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in Virginia Beach. It is a gem of a location which I enjoy each day with long walks on the beach. I have been taking a series of photos over the past year of water, sky, sea life, and people that I see on these walks. This image was taken in January of 2010.
I am so lucky to enjoy the beauty and camaraderie of living so close to this living, breathing estuary . . . I am very protective of OUR Bay and speak out about conservation as often as someone will listen."
—Ally Cassorla (as told to Emmy Nicklin)
