The Mattie Joan deadrise workboat asleep at her berth on Broad Creek. I love the way the early morning light casts a shadowy blue tint on her forward port freeboard (left bow) and sparkles gold across the ripples of a gentle creek. I awoke with the sun on Memorial Day weekend to capture this shot from the opposite bank.

View from the back of my boat at 5:30 AM on a late spring morning. The water is like glass reflecting the yellow, orange and blue colors of dawn.
