The morning was perfect for a sunrise. There was just enough clouds in the predawn sky to make things interesting.
Everything changed within a hour. The clouds departed, leaving only the blinding sun and a very bright blue sky. Even the wind calmed down, turning the Atlantic into a placid lake. It made for a pretty dull beach photography-wise. I decided to head west on the island (the Bogue Banks is situated pretty much east/west so the sun is over the island throughout the day.) It was a long trek but worth it.
This shot on the point at Land’s End catches the sun behind the beach houses which face the west and where the Atlantic and the Bogue sound meet. A rather dark and dramatic scene with everything thrown into silhouette.
As the sun rose over Land’s End, I grabbed a few more pleasing shots of the sand fences and dunes before the light completely washed out and sent me packing. Thanks for looking in. Have a good week ahead. See you next time.
