An Atlantic Sunrise: Nags Head, North Carolina
The Outer Banks of North Carolina have been a popular vacation destination for the D.C. area residents for many years. The Outer Banks have 130 miles of beaches, including some of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches along the East Coast. I was fortunate to make a trip two weeks ago to Nags Head to enjoy the sun and surf, to do a bit of fishing, and to relax with some fine beach weather.
Keep reading for another photo and a sunrise video from June 9, which shows the surf, pelicans, and a dolphin.
Every morning, I would awake around 5 a..m to photograph and film the sunrise over the ocean, then I'd hop back into bed and sleep until 8 or 9 a.m. before going back out to the beach. Of the sunrises, June 9 was my favorite. The sky and water were alive with gulls, pelicans, and dolphins as the sun and clouds produced a beautiful display of color. Check out the video of the sunrise from that day (above), it shows a lot more context than the still photographs.
