Assateague Island, Virginia

So what do you do when you've run dry on snapshots and things to talk about?

Well, you rummage through your very old snapshots and post something just so that you can have a post for Friday. Actually, this was triggered by a post by Dan over Frogs, Dogs and Ferns  about Margaurite Henry and Misty of Chincoteague.

So, for Dan and in memory of her sister, Shona, a picture of the beach at Assateague Island where the wild ponies live.

A fabulous photo - a lonely figure on the beach, a stunning sky .... and a higgledy-piggledy fence!!

This definitely looks too good to be a snapshot.
I really like the sky and the fact that it meets the horizon quite low down in the picture

Dan: You're most welcome. Maybe someday you can come and see Chincoteague and Assateague in person.

Anyes: It just all fell into place for me that morning.

Anne: And what I thought would be a terrible rainy day turned out to be bright and sunny.

Susan: Thank you, too!

Arts: Just a snapshot with a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 point and shoot with just 5mp. I was really really lucky with that shot since I didn't really know what I was doing then.

Looks like a watercolour painting. Beautiful.

Carolina: Thank you, too. Just a very fortunate shot.
