Drive down Great Bay Blvd. from Route 9 in Tuckerton and you're immersed in a huge (over 5,500 acre) state Wildlife Management Area that is open year round for outdoor recreation, including photography. Loads of scenes and wildlife to document and share with the world!
Bring plenty of bug spray in the mid-summer. Lots of biting insects (it's why fall is the best time for photography!). Drive carefully and be aware of crossing terrapins on the road from May through July.
Salicornia virginica is an edible succulent plant that thrives on the coastal salt marsh. In autumn is turns a bright vibrant red color. It's a great contrast to the green spartina cordgrass and the bright blue tidal pools on the marsh. Setting the scene is a nice sunrise in the background.
