I’ve never done scheduled posts with making it visible on my blog at some point in the future. For this sunrise shot I want to ‘surprise’ myself with it appearing for me in the morning without me actually doing anything at that time, I’m actually posting it the night before, get it? Not sure why I’m saying it here, because you probably looking at it at some other point during the day and it will not have the same effect. Well, I think I’m doing this just to amuse myself, and if you enjoy the ride, well that’s good too.
Anyhow, this is Atlantic Beach in North Carolina, Thanksgiving Day morning in 2010. It was a nice day.
Beaufort is a cute slippy little town near Atlantic Beach and Morehead City. If you ever visit Atlantic Beach in NC and want to some choices on food, beer and even live music then this is the place to go at night.
I like how captains name their boats after woman they love. Whether it is their wife, daughter, mother or mistress, most boats have female names and have some meaning to their owner. Like in this instance it is a working fishing boat, going every day into Atlantic ocean for a daily catch to be served at the restaurant behind my back. I bet there is a woman named Rita working in that restaurant, cooking food or overseeing its operations. I can’t recall the name of the place but they served some good sea food.
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.
I took this photo from our balcony at Sheraton hotel. At 300mm, this is a far away zoom of the northern part of the Atlantic beach. I like this part of the Atlantic, ocean here is very clean, there are some nice waves and it is not super overcrowded.
