It was Monday August the 7th…I worked at the Big Owl Tiki Bar on Kent Narrows near the Chesapeake Bay. The weather had been dreary, rainy, and grey all day…and I do mean ALL DAY. It had been such an ugly day, not to mention painfully slow business wise. The owner decided to close up early. We usually were open until 9-10pm on Mondays. On this evening we closed a bit before 7pm.
As I walked up the dock from the tiki bar to the parking lot to get in my truck to head home the clouds started to break up a bit.
And Just as I started across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge the sun started peaking out. I was just about halfway across the bridge when BAM, this wonderful sight was right in front of me. I quickly grabbed my phone and snapped this picture the best that I could. I thought wow this was truly an amazing picture with the sun peering through a hole in the clouds. Also having the bridge structure highlighted by the sun. And as an added bonus a reflection of that on the hood of my truck . I posted it on Facebook at approximately 7:19 pm. There was an immediate explosion of likes and comments to my posting. To me it was a really cool view that just popped up in front of me out of nowhere. But soooo many people LOVED it.
It wasn’t until I got home and looked closely that I really saw what I had captured. So random and I was lucky enough to get a picture of it
