Photographer David Harp was shooting on the Patuxent River when he spotted the Miss Patuxent across the creek early one morning. He put a long telephoto lens on his tripod and took the picture. “I spend an inordinate amount of my time photographing along the crenelated edge of the Chesapeake Bay,” he says, “and it’s capturing scenes like this that keep me looking for the next opportunity.”
