One of my favorite things to do in life is sail. We go out several times a year on a bear boat charter on the Chesapeake Bay, sailing on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Often, on a two day sail, we go up the Chester River to the Corsica River, and anchor there overnight. Sitting in the cockpit at sunset, at anchor with friends, is one of the most peaceful times and places I know. Here is one scene of sunset from a sailboat.

Thanks for your vote on A look at the past..... Some of the problem is from climate change but the biggest culprit is all the dredging that they did in the mid 70's.

Thank you, all. We go out mostly twice a year. One of the treats on the Eastern Shore is frequent sightings of nesting bald eagles, often with a chick (already flying, or not). I have not succeeded, yet, in getting a good shot of the eagles. A long telephoto on the deck of as boat, even in still waters, is challenging. And, they fly with some speed.

I like it ! - As previously said the complement of Gold with Dark / Black looks stunning - wish I could have been there to see it - pretty location too (Well I can imagine what it was like to be there - thanks to your photographic skills!)
