The light here is very special. Emerald Isle is oriented to the southeast so the sun is over the beach throughout the day creating amazing shadows and light patterns. The photo above of a row of sand fences near the barrier dune line is a color shot but the light and shadow play give it the look of a monochrome sepia-like photograph.
With the sun behind me, the light takes on a different hue. This is the view to the south southeast looking toward the point. The beach is incredibly wide here similar to the beaches further down the Atlantic Coast. When I was there last week, I had the entire beachfront to myself.
This view is further down the beach near lands end. It’s hard to fathom that a little over a decade ago, much of this was not here. Nor’Easters, Hurricanes and the constant wind are continually changing the landscape. I used a Nikon D800E Camera on these shots with an 18-35mm wide angle lens. The only clouds were off on the horizon line so the Sunny f/16 rule came into play. f/16, 1/125th of a second, ISO 100. Thanks for the visit and have a great week ahead.
