Another outtake from last year taken at Sachuset Point in Middletown, RI.
I can remember that it was incredibly windy and very cold. In fact you can see snow falling off into the sea on the horizon as well as in several spots throughout the frame. I decided to keep them it.

Regardless of the cold, the color was fantastic.

"Occupying a peninsula between the Sakonnet River and Rhode Island Sound, the 242-acre (0.98 km2) Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is a very popular site for the over 65,000 annual visitors each year. It is located in the south easternmost part of the Town of Middletown.

The refuge sports a newly renovated visitor center, over 2.5 miles (4.0 km) of nature trails, viewing platforms, and a number of Refuge volunteers present to help visitors and to help in management of the refuge.

Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is renowned for its fantastic saltwater fishing, and the presence of the largest winter population of harlequin ducks on the East Coast.
Once a horse racing area, then a Naval communications site, and now a National Wildlife Refuge, the area is steeped in history."
