Having grown up on the southern portion of the bay, I spent the majority of my childhood exploring its many beautiful shorelines. Often seeking the fish that haunt the bays magical waters, some of my best memories are directly tied to the splendor and magnificent imagery the Chesapeake had to offer. My travels away from the area allowed for short glimpses of the bay from the vantage point of airplane windows, often heavily etched by wear. These short air-bound episodes offered a time to view the intricate beauty of the Chesapeake from a whole new perspective. Cameron Davidson has been able to recreate these moments that were once trapped in my mind and give them a physical form exceeding much further than my memory. He has created a wonderful collection of images from the northern stretches of the Chesapeake to the intersection of the bay and the Atlantic. Chesapeake captures not only the beauty of the bay but the varied human activities that define and are embedded in the culture of the Chesapeake Bay.

I live in the widespread region of the Chesapeake watershed and consider the Chesapeake the east-coast equivalent of the West Coast's magnificent Puget Sound. This book brings out the beauty of the Bay, which is endangered, and the entire watershed. I can only hope that, through it's power, it inspires an understanding an asset that not only is beautiful but essential to our regional economy.f

Admittedly I have an attraction for all things "Chesapeake Bay" related. I had high expectations when I heard about this book of aerial photography of the Bay, and Cameron Davidson did not disappoint-with the possible exception of the fact that his beautiful work left me wanting more!

The perspective and photographers eye for beauty make this book a wonderful place to escape and dream. I received this as a gift and spent hours studying the photos. Then I ordered another copy to give as a gift myself. Now the book sits proudly displayed on my coffee table.

This book is stunningly beautiful and poignant in its message regarding the environment. For more of Cameron's photos check out his earlier books (on Amazon of course - such as "Over Florida" or "Over Chicago" or "Over Washington"). I have to admit I'm partial to Cameron's work since I've known him all my life.

Excellent photos - purchased a sample from Amazon and ended up reaching out directly to the photographer for a large order and he even signed each copy for me! Highly recommend.
