Images 6266/6289. Shot RAW. Merged for best exposure.

Just before sunrise. Got up at 3:30 and drove 2 hours to witness the morning. It was a good day.

The sticks in the water are there to help the marsh grasses establish more territory. The Chesapeake Bay is badly polluted and the marshland is in danger of disappearing as water levels continue to rise. I hope we never lose this sanctuary for migrating waterfowl but unless things change it's likely in my lifetime that we will.

Lovely early morning scene with nice depth and beautiful still water. I like the deep dark blues and the poles in the water form an interesting line that draws the viewer into the picture.9
