Photo Of The Day: Skyfall On The Sound

Skyfall    Posted to Flickr October 3, 2014

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.

Have a great remainder of the week.

Photo Of The Day: Driftwood

Blogged May 10, 2015

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.

Thanks for the look and have a great week.

Photo Of The Day: Point Harbor from Duck

00090.obx.12.13_edited-1Shooting 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!!!!!

Photo Of The Day: Northern Exposure

Northern Exposure Posted to Flickr March 5, 2014   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.

Photo Of The Day: The Live Oak


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.

Nikon D7100 Sigma 10-20mm lens.

Thanks for the look and have a great week.

Photo Of The Day: Sea Grass

A Bed Of Sea Grass Posted to Flickr January 4, 2014The 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.

Nikon D600. 24-120mm f/4 lens
