This trip was with the Carolina Nature Photographers Association (CNPA) of which I am a member. However, this was my first outing with them and to Chincoteague, VA after many years since taking my daughter to see the crossing of the ponies. From a photography point of view, this place had it all. Birds, geese, marshes, great sunsets and sun rises and beaches. As a special treat arrangements were made for a private shoot with the owner of several hundred “Chincoteague Ponies”. A return trip is a must!
