Chesapeake Photo Gallery

This Sunday's Washington Post has a marvelous photo gallery of aerial views of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. The photos were made over the course of several decades by Cameron Davidson. The photos show the watershed in all different seasons and weather conditions. They also show the various human impacts – cities, suburbs, farms, and fishing operations. These are interspersed with photos of habitats, such as Blackwater NWR. One photo even shows a Great Blue Heron in flight, from above.

So, go take a look.
