SWF..Assateague sunset

On New Year's Eve and New Years day Hubby and I took unplanned trip to Ocean City and Assateague. These are some of the sunset photos from Assateague Island.  Assateague Island is a great place to see wildlife. As we were watching the sunset a flock of geese flew over, a small flock of geese and ducks were off further in the bay,  a wild pony was nearby, we saw a few sika deers... these deers were introduced back in 1920, many Yellow Rump Warlbers, and an unidentified hawk.














It was getting late and we wanted to look for a motel for the night so we had to leave this beautiful sunset. I'll show some more on another skywatch of this same sunset as we were driving the whole sky lit up with color.

To see more beautiful skies click here Skywatch Friday thanks to the great hosting team Sylvia, Wren, Sandy, Fishing Guy and Klaus.

Also, thank you for stopping bu to see my skywatch.

So pretty! Makes me think that maybe I should make a visit sometime in winter.

I enjoyed your look back at 2010; it was a good year for you, beautiful bird pics!

Lovely, Eileen, and you mentioned more photos when the whole sky lit up with color. That happens here in Alberta, too. What a surprise it was to me when I moved here from BC.

Makes me slightly homesick. I always enjoyed Assateague and OC, especially in the winter month.

What an amazing series of shots, that is a gorgeous sunset. The colors in winter sunsets just seem more intense than other times of the year.
