Chincoteague Sunrise










These are a couple of sunrise photos from Chincoteague Island. Hubby and I were two of just a few people on the beach watching the sunrise. I thought this sunrise was definitely worth us getting up early. I always enjoy watching the birds on the beach and was able to catch a few here there flying over the ocean while the sun was rising.




I saw a few shorebirds and a beautiful reflection on the pool next to the road.

And thank you for stopping by to see my skies and birds.

  2. All three pictures are gorgeous. My favorite is the last sunrise picture. I like the how the sunlight is hitting the water, as well as the silhouette of the bushes in the foreground.
