My collection of personal photograph gallerias. Each galley has a specific theme of photos of things I enjoy viewing. I hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as I did in taking them!
Mallows Bay on the Maryland side of the Potomac River is known as the "largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere" and known as a ship graveyard. The bay, now a wildlife refuge and public park, contains the graves of more than 230 ships sunk in the river. Almost ninety were poorly constructed steamships built during World War I; in 1925 they were burned and scuttled in the bay. Bethlehem Steel then built a salvage basin during World War II to recover metal from the abandoned ships. The ships form a reef that hosts an array of wildlife. These are some photos.
