On Sunday 11 December 2001 I had the pleasure of visiting Assateague Island on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The island is maintained by the National Park Service (NPS). There I enjoyed photographing sunrise, sunset and Snow Geese from sun up to sundown. The NPS Ranger estimated there were nearly 100,000 Snow Geese on the island. The day was simply fantastic and worth leaving the house at 3:30 am.

Caesar, These photos are simply stunning, what a grea day you had for your shoot. I always love sunset/sunrise but that clear blue sky was amazing.
