A flat calm Chesapeake rimed with ice reflects the changing light above, in a view looking east across the mouth of the Sassafras River to Aberdeen. In this time of year, sound adds another layer to the beauty of the landscape. When this photo was taken, eagles fought on mid-river ice floes for fish and swans in a nearby cove whistled in almost-unison. Otherwise, the river was still as a looking glass.
