This photo was taken around 3 30 pm this past Friday as a cold front displaced the warm front with a bit of a punch!! It was taken from the hill in Bay Ridge over looking the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Severn River. The green marker you see in the photo is Tolly Point Shoal Buoy.
All of the white misty back ground is the tops of the waves being lifted airborne by the wind. You can see in the foreground a micro burst hitting the water! These micro burst were creating a rainbow effect as the water was thrown into the air. Recorded gust inland were 59knots! I suspect that they were higher on this open stretch of water funneling down the Severn River.
The ship in the back ground was heading down the bay. I could see with another lens in telephoto mode the waves hitting the side of the ship and spraying over the deck. I bet the captain was happy to get to the "safety" of the ocean!!! – Anarchist Wilber.
