  6. Great shadow shot! I know of that refuge as it has a lot of really neat wildlife there-particularly the flying kind!

  7. Excellent composition of lines, lights and shadows on a landscape rich, interesting and a nice texture.

    MY SHADOWY FRIEND

    My shadow and I are very best friends;
    We walk hand in hand, though the sidewalk ends.

    No matter the time of day or of night,
    My shadow and I will always stick tight.

    We don’t even think of drifting apart,
    For shadow and I are one soul and one heart.

    To have such a friend is heaven, you see,
    For I love my shadow, and shadow loves me.

  9. I was in VA Beach decades ago, and all I remember was beach sand, never having seen the tidal marsh well beyond the hotels and barn,

    I love a salt marsh and the birds that inhabit these environs. The dock is wheelchair friendly, a fine place to visit. Nicely captured, the dock, spectators and photographer too!

  11. Nice self-shadow (that's like a self-portrait I suppose)

    The photo has quite a mysterious air to it. Interesting!
