Project-A Year in Photographs: Moon Rising over Church by SG Atkinson, sgatkinson.com
It was the day before the full moon and I was attending a Prayer Vigil over the problems in Baltimore. When it was over I just happen to look up and catch this view and took the shot. I may still do some work on it.

I had been wanting to photograph the setting full moon for a number of days. However it had been cloudy during a few of the preceding days. Not on Easter Morning. It was a clear and beautiful morning with a wonderful looking moon.

On March 20th, the first day of Spring, we woke up to a Spring Snow Fall. Around two inches fell and temperatures never got much above freezing. Not what you really things about during Spring.

One advantage of being a Photojournalist you often can get shots of unusual moments. On Sunday March 15, Kent County High School hosted a 5K run, the Trojan Trample. With music playing through the stadium’s PA system, a small group took advantage of the music and the wait for the run to start with a little impromptu Zuma.

Snow on the Rocks

Project-A Year in Photographs:Snow on the Rocks by SG Atkinson, sgatkinson.com
I suppose I’m cheating a little bit, since this was actually taken on Monday February 16, 2015 at Ferry Beach Park in Rock Hall, Maryland. A shot looking out on the Chesapeake Bay. Similar to one of my favorite shots of 2014 which showed Ice on the same rocks.

It was around 9:30 in the morning and the temperature was still in the teens. I had driven around 14 miles from home with plans to get a few shots of the bay from Rock Hall. My truck had a bit of trouble starting. When I hopped into it to go to my next location, the battery failed to start the truck. Fortunately I have friends in the area and was able to get a jump.

Needless to say I decided to cancel the rest of my plans and headed back home.
