Photo of the Week: Last Days of Summer

Photo by Patrick Armstrong/

 "This photo was taken from Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis, Maryland. It was taken in July 2010 on a random trip to the park. Some of the people in this photo were enjoying the Chesapeake Bay by fishing, others by resting on the rocks. The views of the Bay from Sandy Point are beautiful, and the sight of the massive Bay Bridge are exciting. It is our own piece of industrial history and a reminder of what beauty lies just on the other side of the Bay, more than just Ocean City, an entire 'shore' of preserves, wilderness, farms, and beaches. We are all lucky to have such things at our fingertips."

--Patrick Armstrong (as told to Emmy Nicklin)
