Nolan has lived his entire life in Maryland, on or near the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. This photo was taken near his home in Downs Memorial Park on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, in Anne Arundel County, Md. Taking photos of raptors is his passion. “It fills me with exhilaration. Nothing gives me more joy than to hike those shores during the summer months, watching those eagles soar in the skies overhead.”
