Photo of the Week: Formative Flying

Photo by Alex Teitelbaum/

"I took this picture on a May morning this year, off of the promenade in Havre de Grace, Maryland, at the point where the Susquehanna flows into the Chesapeake. Of all the places I photograph, the Chesapeake Bay and it's tributaries are my favorites. I grew up on the southern bay in Hampton,Virginia, and eventually found myself living at the very opposite end of the bay in Havre de Grace, Maryland. In addition to being a photographer of the natural beauty of the Bay, I'm a boat owner and have spent much of my life enjoying what these incredible waters offer in terms of recreation and relaxation. I think what the Foundation is doing is a critical part of preserving this treasure for my children and future generations to come."
