You can never hide the sun for long…

First snowfall of the season in beautiful Southern Maryland.    A view from my room.

 

Sunrise, from the West

The sunrise this morning over Oriental, North Carolina was spectacular!  I was watching the sun rise over the Neuse River in Pamlico County watching between the supports of the Oriental Bridge.   The blues, pinks and a little bit of gold were just amazing.   Then I turned around to find this beautiful scene.   The sun clearly rises in the east, but on this morning it was a sunrise from the west.

Ahh, the Beautiful Patuxent River at Sunrise

The 115 mile Patuxent River is the largest and longest river entirely within Maryland, and its watershed is the largest completely within Maryland.

An iPhone Sunrise at “the first, licensed African American-owned and operated airport in Maryland, if not the nation, opened on this site in 1941. Originally known as “Riverside Field”, the Columbia Air Center was established by a group of African American aviators known as the Cloud Club”.   For more information visit: PG County Parks.

One Covered Bridge Deserves Another…

Visit Fine Art America for prints

Just down the street from King’s Bridge is the Barronvale Bridge (also known as Barron’s Mill Bridge), at Middlecreek Township, in Somerset County, Pennsylvania crossing Laurel Hill Creek.  This is the longest remaining covered bridge in Somerset County and is one of 10.   (Eight more to go!)

Advice from  a Great Blue Heron:

– Wade into life.
– Keep a keen lookout.
– Don’t be afraid to get your feet wet.
– Be patient.
– Look below the surface.
– Enjoy a good read.
– Go fish!

The 31st “click” with Nikon D850 and so far I love it!   And oh — at Huntley Meadows in Northern Virginia
