Sunrise Over Broad Creek


Sunrise Over Broad Creek

It was quiet across the creek at Norview Marina while I was waiting for the sun to break the horizon.  When it did, a slight breeze rippled the golden surface that was like glass earlier when the sky was a washed out pink.

Lone Waterman


Lone Waterman

I admire those who make a living on the water, like this lone waterman who awoke before dawn to prepare for his day’s work harvesting crabs on the Rappahannock River. I snapped this shot just after he left his small dock navigating out Broad Creek, hopeful for a good day’s catch. Deltaville, Virginia. May 28, 2011

Still Water


Still Water

Sailboat masts reflect across the glass surface of Broad Creek on an early Spring morning, even before the birds were awake. There is something quite magical and mysterious about this time of day of still waters and quiet shadows. Deltaville, Virginia. May 28, 2011
