Outer Banks Sunset

More pictures today from our recent Outer Banks trip. Not horses this time, but rather, the sunset.

A few years ago, we discovered a tiny “park/beach” on Kitty Hawk Bay.  During the summer months, it’s very busy at sunset.  This time of year, you definitely won’t be alone, but you don’t have to jockey for position to take pictures.

Some sunsets are vibrant and dramatic. This one was soft and tranquil, and the water was as smooth as glass.

This is the same tree that was in my first photo. It was perfectly reflected in the water.

And the reflection of the pier in the background made for an interesting picture.

Overhearing snippets of conversation from people nearby, “oh, how pretty”, the sound of cameras clicking…
