I’ve been eyeing this spot where the cypress trees grow out of the water just a bit south west of Oriental, NC for sometime. I had this vision for a perfect sunrise. I finally made it! The sun was a bit too far to the east yet to rise directly behind the cypress trees, but the color and the reflections were fabulous!

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.

The Governor Harry W. Nice Bridge is scary. It’s about 2 miles long, has two narrow lanes and no shoulders. Concrete barriers line the bridge to stop a vehicle from plummeting over the side. And the bridge is steep. The Bridge opened in 1940 and carries a lot of traffic across the Potomac River between southern Maryland and King George, Virginia. About a week ago I got stuck at the top of the bridge for repair work. And it was scary — so I had to do something to entertain myself so panic wouldn’t set in. That’s when I yanked out the ‘ole iPhone and started taking pictures of PEPCO’s Morgantown Generating Station on the Maryland side. If nothing else, that damn bridge has a view of the Power Plant.

This osprey family nests on a platform on the Patuxent River in beautiful Southern Maryland. I find myself visiting frequently, just to see what they are up to. Three (3) chicks were born but with today’s visit I only spotted 1. I’m not sure where the other 2 chicks were — I doubt if they left the nest yet because that’s usually 8 to 10 weeks after their first flight. So… I’ll be back looking for them.
So… How can you tell the difference between the males and females?
The females are often larger than the males. Females have wingspans almost five feet, and weigh up to four pounds; males weigh about two pounds. They have a characteristic black stripe through the eye and have charcoal and white feathers.
