River To The Sky

Sunrise on the river is one of my favorite ways to start the day.  When the water is calm it’s hard to image a more peaceful place.  Approaching the river fills me with a sense of wonder and a profound appreciation of what lies ahead.  Soon I’ll be out there among the herons and geese.

Fishing Buddies

I love this picture because it’s completely candid and you can see the authentic happiness in the faces of these guys.  Even though you can’t see much of his face, you can tell the man on the right has a big smile.

Storm Gathering Over The Rappahannock

My friends I and were on a multiday canoe trip on the Rappahannock River in July.  One evening we rounded a bend in the river to see massive storm clouds building down river.  Fortunately the storm took an alternate course and we were spared scrambling ashore to wait it out.
