I took these photos in late fall from the shores of Tylerton on Smith Island, Maryland. I was on Tylerton as a part of a conservation field trip my school does every year, I had happened to look at the water and snap this photo before the sun had set.
The Chesapeake Bay has always been close to my heart. Being from Delaware, the Bay was always around. When I went swimming or crabbing, it was always at the Bay. I've learned so much from the Bay, and I know there is more to learn . . . from the wildlife, to the Bay itself, to the people who make a life on the Chesapeake.
Ensure that Evelyn and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint--the plan to Save the Bay!
