Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, Virginia

Chincoteague NWR is one of my favorite places, and I have been there often. This is the afterglow of a sunset back in December 2000. Some of the bare trees are Loblolly Pines that were damaged by a Southern pine beetle infestation in 1994. The Fish and Wildlife Service is destroying infested trees in an effort to save the remaining trees. The "dots" in the sky are geese. They're easier to see in the larger scan.
