~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827


I loved this pier…

Despite the ones below being taken at ISO 1600 (BY MISTAKE) I think I salvaged some of them to be pretty decent:

I like the sunburst…

    Glad to see more of the Outer Banks! My favorites are 3, 4, 6, and 9. Love the little bird on the gate in #3 and the soft grasses in the foreground of #4.

    What a beautiful way for me to start my morning….enjoying these wonderfully serene images. I’m especially drawn to the color tones and tranquility of #4 and to the composition of #9. Lovely.

    These pictures are so serene Jen. I feel very at peace when I look at them. And, I agree – that pier does look so nice – I love it too. And I’m only seeing it in pictures…

    These are all great photos but the fourth and the last one are killer. The bay side of the OBX was very good to you. All the images you captured from there turned out excellent.

  11. I really like your last shot very nice!!
