Photography at Pelican Island NWR Trails

Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge is our Nation's first wildlife refuge established in 1903 by President Theodore Roosevelt.

Our shoot location provides a boardwalk and other trails accessible from the last parking lot. The boardwalk leads to a platform overlook of Pelican Island . The park opens at 7:30 a.m.

Note that a minimum of five persons are needed to attend.

DIRECTIONS:'s maps seem NEVER to get it right! Therefore, I include two maps here that I know are correct. Also, you might try these coordinates Lat:[masked] Lon: [masked] in your GPS (not verified yet, acquired from Google maps).

And of course, it's late January so dress accordingly.  I hope to see you there.

    The fog was a gift, that yielded soft lighting for macro shots and a mystical mood for landscapes.

    Patience was a virtue today, but it paid off, once the fog lifted...
