About the Cover Photographer Monte Morton Monte Morton, of Elkton, MD, has had a passion for photography since childhood. His uncle worked for Eastman Kodak and would visit every summer with his Rolleif lex camera and offer instruction. After taking a photography class in high school he was hooked. Monteâ€™s photographic interests lie in capturing the Chesapeake Bay and the rural Pennsylvania landscapes, covered bridges and the unique lifestyle of the Amish people that live there. Although the Amish are typically hesitant towards outsiders, especially those who possess a
camera, Monte has been fortunate to establish personal friendships within this tight-knit community. He has won both national and international awards for his photography including being featured in National Geographic, and was featured in their first iPad issue. The picture of the Assateague ponies on the cover was taken during a recent trip to the beach.
