Photo Of The Week: Walking to the Sun

Walking To The Sun Posted to Flickr April 16, 2016

Another shot taken on the beach at Emerald Isle, North Carolina.   The island faces almost due south so the sun is always over the beach from sunup to sunset.  I was taken with the three figures walking to the sun on the vast, vacant beach on a very bright day.  Thanks for the visit and have a great week. 

Photo Of the Day: September Sunrise


From September of last year.   Meantime, the nonstop string of cars, trucks and campers loaded with all things beach clog the beach road heading in both directions. The goers and comers have one more month,  then the all clear signal will go up and I’ll head back to renew old acquaintances.  Hope you have a great Sunday. And thanks for the look.

Photo Of the Day: Shoreline Respite

Shoreline Respite  Posted to Flickr May 3, 2014Looking south on the beach at Kitty Hawk on the Outer Banks. This was shot the day after Labor Day last year.   The summer crowds are gone and what we call the quiet season has begun.  Perhaps needless to say, I am looking forward to September.  Have a great week ahead and thanks for the look. Nikon D700/ 18mm

Photo Of The Day: Grand Encounter


I know, another beach sunrise.  Sorry.  I’ve been on jury duty this week so I had to dive into the archives.   This one from September of 2011.  The sun is just topping the ocean in this view from Duck, NC.  Click on the photograph for a larger view.

As for jury duty, I’m done: the accused pled guilty this morning which thankfully, negated the need for my services.  It’s the second straight time  I have been called for jury duty in North Carolina and never served on a jury. I’m not complaining.  I’d much rather be out with the camera.

Thanks for the look.  And have a great evening

Nikon D700, 24mm.

Photo Of The Day: Sea Of Tranquility

Sea Of Tranquility  Posted to FLickr Sept 8,2013 BloggedThis was a bit of a time exposure which will always flatten out the ocean but even so, for the Atlantic on the Northern Outer Banks, this is a calmness that is rather seldom seen.  It was a lovely day, the clouds making wonderful art in the sky. Nikon D600 Camera with an 18-35mm lens at 18mm.   Thanks for the look in and have a marvelous Sunday.

Photo Of The Day: Walking To Duck

Walking To Duck  Blogged January 13, 2014Sandpiper-like shorebirds marching through the surf toward Duck on the Outer Banks. When a breaker would roll in they’d all fly a ways then resume their march when surf the receded.  Thanks for the look and have a great week.
