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!

As for what the Bay means to me: Here in Cambridge, the Choptank flows with the tides and gives us sights like this if you're lucky enough to be there at the right time--in my case, the full moon last Thanksgiving.
