Perfect, Part 2

After saying good-bye to the picturesque town of Edenton Saturday afternoon, Motor Man and I traveled (about an hour) on to the Outer Banks, where we stayed the night.

Early Sunday morning, but not quite early enough for sunrise, we drove up on the beach at Corolla.

Just as Saturday had been, the weather was perfect.

We saw 17 horses during our trip, including this family of three.

You may recognize the little one from a previous post; we saw him on our last trip.  Corolla Wild Horse Fund responded to my inquiry about him; his name is Eugenio, and he was born last November. He was the only foal born during the winter.

We caught this group in the special lighting that only comes during “golden hour”. It’s my favorite time of day to go in search of the horses.

I was hoping this one would raise her head, but she didn’t.  She was too busy having breakfast.

As a supporter of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, I should mention that Currituck County law states that you must keep a minimum of 50 feet from the horses. In many of my photos, they appear much closer. I use a zoom lens (often), and some of my pictures are cropped, which, of course, also makes the horses seem closer than they actually are. 

On the way home, we stopped to visit Aggie.  Thankfully, there’s no minimum distance ordinance for her.

  1. A lovely “Day 2″…….love the beach shot with the fences……


  2. Had a feeling there might be some equine happiness in this post 🙂

  3. Eugenio.. I like it! Aww Aggie, got her sweet self some lovin’ from you.. of course!

  4. This is definitely on my bucket list. We have been to the Outer Banks several times but we never made the Corolla part to see the horses. There is still something left for me to do then! Love the pictures and you definitely got the golden hour captured!

  5. So much beauty in your pictures today. But there usually is. I’m glad you got to see your “old friends”. Aggie is a sweetheart!

  6. Beautiful photos, my favorite being the sand dunes.

  7. You had beautiful pictures today and informative information. Great post.

  8. glad you got to see them, again! i always smile when i see you loving on aggie. 🙂

  9. Beautiful! Your posts really make me want to visit that area.

  10. I’m so thankful the horses didn’t suffer any harm or damage from the recent hurricane. I’m glad you made this post about them. They’re so beautiful. Your horse photos are amazing. I love that colt, he’s so cute.
    I think the Zoom feature is wonderful. My photo taking would be nothing without zoom or crop.
    Your sand/fence photo would be a peach of a promo for a beach ad.
    Yep, you definitely are a talented photographer. 🙂

  11. Hmmm you might soon be seeing more foals! The mare that couldn’t stop eating sure looks pregnant. She might be eating for two!

  12. So beautiful! I love the wild horses who seem to pay you no mind.

  13. Gotta’ love the zoom lens!
    Eugenio is a good name for him… and it does look like there could be at least one more foal on the way !

  14. Beautiful as always. Something you nor us ever tire of.

    You truly did a wonderful job on this group of pictures, Dianna. I think if I had to pick, the one taken at golden hour with the group of horses is my choice. Thanks so much for supporting these beautiful creatures.

  16. Thanks for taking us along on your weekend getaway, Dianna! As usual, your photos are stunning! Can that sky be any bluer? Beautiful!

  17. What a gorgeous landscape to find wild horses. I’m glad they’re protected too. Aggie reminds me of a movie star horse. The hero always rides a white horse. Wesley in Prince Bride and the Lone Ranger are two that come to mind.

  18. I know you and Aggie are both happy about that! It was a beautiful weekend. Nice beach shots–and horses! That little one is adorable.

  19. What a beautiful place and beautiful photos dear Dianna! ❤️❤️❤️

  20. Love your pictures and stories, Dianna 🙂
