  • Photo of the Week: "Love" at Cape Charles

    This is of my family at the Chesapeake Bay at Cape Charles, Virginia. This has been our vacation spot for years. I have been going there for about 30 years, [since I was two-years-old]. I now am blessed to be able to share it with my husband, 10-year-old son, and 5-year-old daughter. We love the "at home" atmosphere of Cape Charles, the semi-private beach, natural abundance, and fishing opportunities.

  • Photo of the Week: Pink Sky on Nandua Creek

    Living within walking distance of one of the best sunset viewing spots ever, I get many, many great photos but this recently snapped shot has become a new favorite!

  • Photo of the Week: No Better Place on Earth Than Here

    Sunset on the Great Wicomico River, just after witnessing a large pod of dolphins playing near Reedville.

  • Photo of the Week: Truly an Awesome Experience

    In late May, I met a friend of mine and we decided to go sit on the beach . . . As soon as we saw the water we were in shock.

  • Photo of the Week: It Wasn't Until . . .

    A young Bald Eagle comes in for a delicate landing on a branch that seems too flimsy to hold him . . . but did! Taken in late February on the Western Branch of the Elizabeth River, Portsmouth, Virginia.

  • Photo of the Week: The Bay as My Home Port

    Two images from a sailing trip to Tilghman Island last summer. One is right at Knapps Narrows and the other is from the inn just north of the narrows . . . they show just a taste of the beauty that the Bay has to offer.

  • Photo of the Week: Nothing More Relaxing

    I took this early one November day at Conowingo Dam. The bird in the tree is an adult bald eagle.

  • Photo of the Week: This Is What It's All About

    [I took this] on Smith Island on Wednesday, April 20. Myself and another William H. Farquhar Middle School teacher took a group of our students on one of CBF's overnight education experiences.

  • Photo of the Week: A Photographer's Dream

    This is a picture taken at Point Lookout State Park in St. Mary's County, Maryland. To me, the Bay and its waters are a huge part of why I live here.

  • Photo of the Week: My Best Sunset

    This is perhaps the best sunset photo I took last year, and I take them every time they are in front of my eyes.
