Atlantic Beach in North Carolina is positioned East-West and sun does not rise straight from the ocean as you’d expect in many other parts of the coast. It is rising from the ocean, but really close to the coast line. Same happens about sunset. So if you ever want to see sunset and sunrise from the same spot and both over the water then this place should be on your list of travel destinations. This photo was taken during sunrise. Waves were trying to get me and my tripod but I fought them back (by running away and returning). I like how sunrise painted water to the left with some orange and to the right it is still in the dark.
