I cannot remember what prompted me to venture out to the beach so early on this particular morning. I usually don’t, delaying my arrival to just a few minutes before sunrise. Just enough time to set up the tripod and get set for the big reveal. I was very early on this morning. Sunrise was 15 or 20 minutes away. Dawn has just broken with just enough light to cast a glow on the ocean and illuminate the breakers on the beach. The sky to the west over the Sound is still dark. I take a lot of shots out here but I think this one really does capture the wonderful isolation one feels on the Outer Banks in the Winter. One feels very very small in this situation.
Thanks for the look and have a great weekend.
