"It's hard to understate what the Bay means to me. Three generations of my family have spent the last 40 years boating, crabbing, fishing, and living in three different counties on the Bay. The Bay's brackish water runs in our blood.

I have been all over the Bay, but Smith Island was one of those places that I always wanted to visit but never had. This photo was taken at sunset in Tylerton, Smith Island, during a weekend photo club visit this past July.

The Smith Island visit capped off a collection of photographs I've been taking on the Bay for the past 11 years that I will be publishing in my book, working title 'Chesapeake Views,' hopefully next year."
