Marsh Edge Trail Panoramas At Blackwater NWR

We have been to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge dozens of times but for some reason we never went and explored the Marsh Edge Trail section. You basically pass the Marsh Edge parking area as you enter the Wildlife Drive. It was a Great Area to wander through and photograph. In some seasons I guess it could be very buggy but on this trip there were no insects except Dragonflies. But the Dragonflies were constantly moving so I did not get any good dragonfly images here. All images here were taken with my iPhone 11 Pro and panoramas blended in Photoshop. The Featured Image was 28 images, 2 rows of 14 images taken with the 1.5mm lens (Full Frame Equivalent of 13mm).

  1. You create such beautiful images with your techniques! Thanks for including the maps, I really enjoy getting a sense of the surroundings.

  2. Beautiful panos, I love that trail, Reed! Lots of little birds there as well as the Eagle nest up in one of those loblolly trees along the water’s edge. It’s too difficult to see from the trail but you can from the platform. They close this trail late fall when it’s time for the Eagles to start nesting again. And yes, buggy buggy buggy in the summer! 😉

    • Thanks Donna! I have seen many Eagles in the trees by the parking area there, but never really explored the trail before! I was looking for dragonflies but they did not stay still long enough to get any images as they were constantly moving.
