The Nook, First Landing State Park, Virginia Beach

My wife and I visited my brother and his family in Virginia Beach the summer of 2017 and we were told about some more natural looking areas around the beach. I've never been able to photograph the bald cypress and certainly not Spanish moss, but I got both of them here.

I went out on a Wednesday with my nephew and it was bright and sunny with the sun leaking through the trees. I knew it would give too much contrast, even if it was a great sight naturally. I got my wife to go out with me later in the week and got this shot with my digital camera. I think it turned out great, and it should have, considering all three of us got bitten up by chiggers on the trails.
