Bay Watch

One January morning, photographer Geoffery Hodgdon awoke to this magnificent sunrise on Herring Bay, 20 miles south of the Annapolis. “The Chesapeake is often frothy in cold weather, but this morning it was unusually still,” he recalls. “I couldn’t get the camera set up fast enough.” Evidently, Hodgdon’s timing was perfect, as he points out: “The image is completely un-retouched—this is exactly how it came out of the camera.”
