August at Pine Knoll Shores

Summertime At The Beach Blogged August 7, 2016

Pine Knoll Shores is another of the small Beach Towns that dot the Bogue Banks between Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle, North Carolina.  The beach here is quite wide and is home to some of the prettiest Sea Oates I have seen along the entire  Outer Banks.  I shot this with the D800E Camera fitted with the 18-35mm wide angle lens.  I rather like the composition which manages to include all of the prime elements of what one would expect to find  along the coast of NC: Sea Oats, Sand Fences, a sprinkling of beach umbrellas, the almost white sand and of course the Atlantic.   It was a beautiful day with a few clouds but it was staggeringly hot. The heat index was right at 115. Thanks for the visit and have a great week ahead.

  1. 115 is hot..a very nice time to be at the beach if there is a breeze to cool you off….
    Your image has all the beach elements that make us want to go for a visit…beautiful photography.

  2. Beautiful shot John. We were just down in the OBX today. My daughter and husband are moving there. She has a job at the hospital and they just put a contract on a house and wanted us to see it. Who knows – maybe we’ll head that way – I can dream!!\
