The late summer day was hazy, even if the temperatures were cooling. The waters on the Chesapeake Bay were calmer than usual, with many summer revelers already returned to the marina for the evening.
The Osprey had returned to their nests for the night, but staying ever vigilant of passerby’s.
The Baltimore Lighthouse stood the ready to shine the light throughout the night.
A small Forster’s Tern had hoped to have a quiet resting stop on a bobbing marker. But decided the ride was just a bit too bouncy.
Then in the haze, the sun became a giant red ball. Quickly sinking westward, growing ever brighter.
The last picture was brilliant….
Thank you so much Nina!

Appreciate you sharing this with your readers Priya.
I loved the osprey, and the last image is spectacular!
Thanks Jerry! All about being at the right place and the right time. And..going back and forth to get the shot. LOL!
Nice positioning and timing on that last shot Em 😊
Thanks Mark ! We did have to wait a bit for the sun to come down. Then on the choppy water wind back and forth until we got it just right. Wait..wait..wait..now!
Wow great shot! How long did you wait for the sun to line up like that? ! I forgot how patient you are…
LOL ! Actually it sort of just showed up to me on our return back towards home. It was about aligning the boat with the birds/sun at the right spot. Took a couple of tries but we got it. 🙂
Marvelous captures, Emily. The last one is absolutely stunning. 🙂
Shows how things I think aren’t super great when they actually are. Thank you so much ! The last one was indeed the show stopper of the series.
Wow! So, so beautiful! ❤
Thank you so much TK!
What a brilliant shot of the sun and birds!
Well, the sailboats weren’t cooperating, so I had to find something to put in front of the sun. And voila ! There were the birds. LOL !
All the photos were amazing. Thank you.
