Last week I spent a few days shooting in and around Virginia Beach, VA as my wife was attending the ILLiad Conference. Over the next week or so I'm going to post more of the photographs from the trip.
We spent Sunday night in southern Maryland and woke up to a lovely covering of snow. This red barn at Locust Hill Farm near Port Tobacco Valley, MD in Charles County, MD
Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Route 301 in Port Conway, VA.
Realtor's office at Queen and Church Streets in Tappahannock, VA.
Rudee Inlet, Virginia Beach, VA.
A scene from the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center at Virginia Beach, VA back deck, near Rudee Inlet. The black dot near the top of the tree on the right hand side of the photograph is a bald eagle.
Fresh water aquarium.
Sturgeon with a Gar in the background.
Female Komodo Dragon.
Entrance to a large salt water aquarium area known as The Dead Sea.
The top and bottom fish are Unicorn fish. I didn't figure out what the guy in the middle is. I want to call the unicorn fish the "Nixon" fish.
The color is from a light at the bottom of the aquarium. It is used to highlight the jellyfish since they are translucent and aren't easily seen without the light.
Found around the world these fish are venomous and in certain areas of the Caribbean there is a bounty because they are an invasive species.
Unfortunately for this guy, the pelicans were catching more fish than he was.
