Assateague & Chincoteague (11/11 & 1/12)
Trust everyone had a joyous holiday season and Happy New Year. I have taken several trips over to both Assateague Island National Seashore, MD and Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, VA recently, providing private lessons to clients and doing an art festival. Due to the warmer weather we have had this winter, the congregations of waterfowl normally at the refuge have been sparse. The above photo of a White Ibis was captured at Chincoteague. The numbers of this species in the refuge this year have been surprising high. The two goose shots below were captured during a late afternoon shoot with awesome light.
The below wild horse shots were all taken at Assateague. In comparison to prior years, the number and locations of horses accessible for photography was better than average.
Worked out especially well with nice morning light and the wild horse approaching the water for a reflection one morning in Chincoteague.
Good light and great histograms.
