Afternoon along the Currituck Sound in Eastern, North Carolina.
Time to start packing bug spray with a high deet factor if you’re headed this way. The dreaded flies are back on patrol for some nice juicy human to much on. I make it a point to wear long sleeve shirts this time of the year. People look at me like am nuts …….until they get stung.
Along the coast of the Currituck Sound near Duck, North Carolina on the Outer Banks.
Not much shooting of late. I had the misfortune of eating some of the Blue Bell Ice Cream that was recalled because of possible Listeria contamination. I had all the symptoms so I had to go through a bevy of tests including a CT Scan, a blood test and a fecal test. All came back negative. Turns out the symptoms were triggered by an antibiotic I took before dental surgery. It killed off a lot of the good bacteria in my gut. A probiotic got me re-regulated so to speak. Live and Learn.
Shooting the sun at f/22 will always give you a nice sunstar. The number of radials depends on the lens. Shot from the boardwalk at Duck on New Years Day. That’s seagrass in the foreground. Thanks for the visit and have a great evening. And…Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!
Golden Sea Grass hugs the shoreline with Currituck Sound just North of Duck, North Carolina. The view is to the north and illustrates the vastness of the Sound. Click on the Photograph for a larger loook. Taken in the late afternoon light. Aside from some sharpening, this is pretty much straight out of the camera. Nikon D600 24mm lens.
A Live Oak on the shoreline of Currituck Sound near Duck, NC on the Outer Banks. Live Oaks, so named because they are evergreens year round, thrive on the outer banks. Their low profile I’ve heard is because of the never ending wind off the ocean and sound. Always artistic in profile thanks to their haphazard limb formations, they make an interesting subject for the camera. That’s a combination of sea grass and sea oats around it.
The golden yellow color of this Sea Grass and its reflection are what caught my eye. A familiar sight along the shoreline, they also dot the Sound with large and small beds growing from the bottom of the shallow water. It’s quite a scene particularly in the late afternoon when the setting sun makes them shine. Seriously cold here overnight with the temperature dropping to the mid teens. Factor in the wind chill and it felt like single digits. Hardly beach weather. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
