Photo of the Week: Sunrise on the Bay

"For much of the year, I live on the Chesapeake Bay. The view from our house on Stove Point is unencumbered by land--just a jut of Gwynn Island to the right and Stingray Point to the left. In the distance almost directly in front of the house is Marker Number 6, a small black channel marker that blinks a red light at night. This marker is a beacon--a constant in an expanse of ever-changing light, wind, and color. Several years ago I decided to take a photo of this panorama every morning at dawn. While undertaking this project, I found that my long-time fascination with observing water and weather and sky turned into a fixation. This particular scene was shot early on a September morning. Several years ago in late summer, the morning skies were spectacular. But then, most mornings on the Bay are gorgeous, no matter the season."�
