Chincoteague

September 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

My wife and I recently visited Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island in Virginia. The biggest attractions for the wildlife refuge are the Chincoteague Ponies. The wild horses that live on the island were made famous by the book Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry, and later the movie of the same name. Assateague is also home to a number of bird species and the Assateague Light House.

During our visit, I really hoped to shoot some nice landscapes. Unfortunately, the weather refused to cooperate. We either had no clouds at all or the the sky was completely overcast—it even rained on our last day there. Nevertheless, I think I got some nice shots.

I got up early in hope that the sun would peek through the clouds. I was rewarded very briefly for my efforts.
