The Riverkeeper

Took the James Riverkeeper on another photo mission, this time to the lower Appamattox River, where he wanted to photograph some nasty stuff spilling into the river.

He checked out the crud.  I checked out the landscape and was surprised by how wild and unspoiled the river looks from above, even though it flows through a heavily populated area.  There must be 10 or 15 miles where it's flowing north from Petersburg toward Richmond, and there's almost nothing there but water and trees.  Then it turns east and joins the Janes at Hopewell, where the air smells foul from the chemical plants.
