Where was this photo taken?

VA USA off of the Chesapeake bay.

It was low tide and perfect weather with a flat calm sea.

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?

When I found this piece, I was walking down the beach at low tide around 10 a.m.

I stepped into the water standing in about 6 inches looking through a small shell bed when I saw a large piece that appeared to be bonfire glass.

When I picked it up it turned out to be a bottle topper in perfect condition and completely wheathered.

My heart exploded with excitement at this find of a lifetime!
