Sometimes, you encounter a moment when you just have to stop what you're doing and take it all in. This is what happened when we were on our way to work one early morning and came across the breathtaking beauty of the scenery along the Chester River in Chestertown.
A thick fog lay heavy over the river as relatively cool air hovered above the warmer water of the river. The sun had just crested the horizon and its rays were being diffused by the dense fog, giving it a soft warm glow. It was quiet, the thick fog obscuring all noise except the sound of the engine of a local waterman's boat heading out to harvest oysters. Even the sound of cars crossing the metal drawbridge span of the Chester River bridge was absorbed by the fog, giving the surrounding area an eerily quite feel. The schooner Martha White was enveloped in the mist, making it seem as if, rather than floating on water,it was floating on a cloud.
Upon seeing this view, we turned the car around and immediately put the drone in the air to capture aerial photography and videography of th fog covered landscape. Needless to say, having deviated from our commute, we were late to work.
It was worth it.
