Church Steeples and the State House Dome

The Eastport Bridge with Historical Church Steeples and the Maryland State House Dome Across the Skyline at Dawn in Annapolis Maryland August 3rd 2016

The earthen like hues of a civil twilight, the latter part of dawn if you would, on most days often include various shades of pink, blue as well as faint traces of yellow most of which are easily discernible to the eye, more so then during a nautical twilight. Such was the case earlier as I watched the light of a new day make its debut in the skies above the Eastport Bridge and a recognizable Annapolis skyline.

It was from my lofty perch above the harbor that I could clearly make out the historic Charles Carroll House, and to a much lesser degree the top of St. Anne’s Church steeple in the distance on Church Circle. More prominent in today’s photograph were both the rectory and steeple at St. Mary’s Parish on Duke of Gloucester Street. Finally the omnipresent upper section of the Maryland State House dome is seen rising above a canopy of trees.

As an aside across the water’s surface in the foreground, directly beneath the near side of the Eastport Bridge, a reflection of its brick colored metal side rails span almost the entire width of the harbor at that point.

It certainly was well worth it to have been up early so as to enjoy an unobstructed early morning view of the bridge along with the pastel colors of the day’s picturesque civil twilight.

Enjoy the view and have a good afternoon,

Glenn
