Photo of the Week: A Photographer's Dream

Photo of the Week: A Photographer's Dream 695x352

Image of bay grasses and the Bay at sunrise.

—Keith Burke

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. The beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the recreational activities, the fishing, the food, the culture . . . it really doesn't get much better. We still get all four seasons. The colors of fall, the smell in the air during spring, and the mild winters, which give us just the right amount of snow to satisfy my snow withdrawals . . . but nothing beats watching a summer sunset from the shores of the Bay, or even being able to lay out under the stars at night [see photo below]. It is honestly a photographer's dream!
