Photo Of The Day: The Gazebo at Duck


I’m such a sucker for this abandoned structure in the Currituck Sound at Duck, NC.  I must have taken a hundred shots at various angle at different times of the day and I still find myself drawn to it.  In its day, this offered a magnificent view of the Sound until a hurricane took out the walkway and the floor of the structure.  Amazingly, the roof has survived.  I can’t remember if it was Hurricane Isabel or Irene.  This is taken in late afternoon light in mid September.  Now, its left to the Sea Gulls.  Thanks for the look and have a great weekend.

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.
