Down by the Riverside

Today's image is from one of my favorite hangouts along Carter's Creek in the great state of Virginia. You can see a couple of previous images here and here. With another trip to the Northern Neck scheduled soon, I thought I would share this shot here today. The sun has just dropped over the horizon to the right and the first hint of the blue hour has began to show in the sky above. The blue hour supplies a surreal type of overhead lighting that is great for details and colors, often yielding unique scenes with hues of awesome purple and blue. This is no doubt one of the best times for photography.

That lovely home across the creek was worked on during it's construction by my long-time fishing pal and great friend Joe Woods. Joe was a Master Carpenter who left us too soon a couple of years ago. But like my old pal, this area brings me many great memories.

Riverside Stroll

Down by the riverside (sounds like a song) during the early morning hours when the fog is lifting and there remains a distinct chill in the air, a family can be seen walking along the banks of the Susquehanna River. This is the town of Havre de Grace (pronounced "Haaver dee Grayce") Maryland, where the Susquehanna empties into the top of the Chesapeake Bay. The town was founded in 1782 and has a rich history. More on the town in future posts. I noticed this group of people out strolling and thought it would make a nice image to remember my last visit there.

What looks like a large boat cleat in the left foreground is actually a large piece of driftwood. In the background is a high speed railroad bridge where I watched Amtrak's Acela blow through town at speeds in the 90-100 MPH range. Anyway, the walkers knew I was taking their photo but didn't seem to mind. And nor did I. :-)
