Sunrise Saturday

As promised, today’s sunrise photos are from our drive on the beach last Sunday morning on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

I mentioned previously what an early morning it was. When this first picture of the sun, just peeping over the horizon, was taken, we’d been up for well over an hour.

About a minute later.

SO worth the pre-dawn alarm.

An early morning gull.

And one more picture of those beautiful horses. They were definitely posing for us.

And although this wasn’t taken at the time of  sunrise, I wanted to share this picture of pelicans in flight.

We’re ready for another sunrise journey on the beach.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous….I’m sure you ARE ready for another sunrise on the beach – can’t blame you! Mother Nature certainly cooperated this day though to give you some incredibly beautiful images through the lens to capture and share. We mortals appreciate it! 😀

I love horses and that is a knock me out picture but I have to tell you I LOVE the “early morning gull”.
