This is another photo from last year early morning photo shoot at Atlantic Beach in NC. You can check other photos by selecting Atlantic Beach category on the right side. There should be a few of them there.
We were back at the same place in May, actually couple times, but with longer days the sun does not rise over the ocean during this time, it was rising way over the island and it was setting way over the island as well. It might seem like an obvious thing, but with the way this island is positioned, east,west and the sunset sunrise is not so obvious during different times of year. As I learned it is not super good place for morning and evening pictures during the summer. But it can be pretty good in the middle of the winter, as this photo was taking during Thanksgiving weekend, almost winter.
