  • 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.

  • Photo of the Week: Spring Has Sprung

    Spring has literally sprung over the Northeast! If there's ever a time to witness one of the most spectacular natural wonders, it's during the annual spring migration of snow geese and tundra swans that stopover at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

  • Photo of the Week: Full Moon Rising

    I shot this at the rising of the November 2015 full moon over the Choptank River. The geese just happened by!

  • Photo of the Week: The Bay Wins

    Earlier today, in an historic win for clean water across the region, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the request of the American Farm Bureau Federation and its allies to take up their case challenging the legality of the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint.
