Chincoteague Images


Wildlife photography during my recent trip to Chincoteague was greatly hampered by the government closing of the federal lands but the waterfront provided plenty of other opportunities.

This sunrise shot made from Chincoteague Island with the Assateague Lighthouse to the right is one of my favorites from the trip.

 
Another composition of the same scene shown in the first image.
 

 
A Great Blue Heron perched on the roof of a small building sitting over the salt marsh along Chincoteague's eastern shore made a nice silhouette against the morning sky. 

 
Docked in the Curtis Merritt Harbor, a fishing boat catches the last rays of a setting sun.
