A Winter Morning in Virginia's Northern Neck

We spent the last weekend of the year at our house at the mouth of Antipoison Creek, in Virginia. Sunday, December 29th saw a cold rain most of the day, clearing late in the afternoon. As seen in the attached picture, Monday saw a colorful sunrise over the Bay. The ochre-colored building is Mike’s oyster house, closed up for the season while the oysters are dormant in their cages and floats. Little Bay is behind the oyster house, and the Chesapeake to the left. Except for some Canada geese and Bufflehead ducks, not much was stirring that chilly morning.
