On the Border

I pulled off the side of River Road this morning and climbed down a steep slope to the banks of the Patapsco River. I wanted to take some photos of Simkins Dam. On this breezy July 4th morning I came upon this idyllic scene along the border of Howard and Baltimore counties.


Before long I heard a faint but familiar rumble of a train in the distance and before I could adjust my camera it was across the river.


As odd as this may sound, these contrasting scenes seemed to be in perfect harmony this morning.

Happy July 4th!

Nice touch, with the video, WB! I appreciate your heading down the slope to capture.

Happy 5th, too!
