Chincoteague and Assateague Islands are located on the Eastern Shore and offer miles of clean undeveloped beaches, marshes and forests stretching from Virginia to Maryland. The area is known for its great abundance of migratory birds and wild horses. We will be shooting the various waterfowl, such as the great blue heron, osprey, great white egret, cattle egret, snowy egret, double-crested cormorant, glossy ibis, tundra swan, American black duck and many others. This will be during peak fall migration and we should see quite a few snow and canada geese.

The number of shorebirds using the Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge ranks it fourth among sites east of the Rockies at which a census has been taken. It is second in diversity. The beach, flats, marshes, and impoundments have established the refuge as one of the most important shorebird management areas in eastern North America.

Birds and wild ponies are not the only photographic opportunities on the islands. The Town of Chincoteague is a quaint little village with Victorian Inns with great architectural detail and there is a lighthouse on Assateague, the golden marshes and blue waters are beautiful at sunrise and sunset, the reflections at sunset are just amazing, there are shipping vessels, boat houses, etc., that provide many opportunities for some interesting abstracts. Let your eye be your guide to some of the colorful surroundings you may encounter.

When we are driving around the loop, you will probably see the Sika deer, which is a Japanese species. These are smaller than the white-tailed deer usually seen in our area.

On Saturday evening, we will meet and review some of our photos from the weekend. We will have a digital projector and laptops to review some of your images. It will be an opportunity to share and see the images everyone has captured during the day. This is a great way to get ideas for better composition, exposure, etc. A short class on Photoshop's tips and techniques will be included in this workshop.
