Photo Of The Day: Sand Fences

Winter  Posted to Flickr January 12. 2014    Like soldiers standing guard, the Sand Fences protect the vital barrier dunes. New arrivals have come to reinforce those who have done their duty.  Late fall on the beach at Duck, North Carolina. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.

Photo Of The Day: Another Outher Banks Sunrise

obx14.0138.edited_edited-1Wish I had a nickel for every one of these I have photographed over the years.  They’ve never been big sellers for me on my site.  There must be millions of these on the net but still, I cannot resistt.  There is just something about a sunrise over the ocean that pushes all of my buttons.  Thanks for the look and have a great mid week.

Photo of The Day: Currituck Sound at Duck

BloggedI’m always attracted to the various textures at play along the soundside of Duck. Close in to the shoreline, the water is  so still it mirrors the sky while further out, the wind creates brush strokes on the water.  A very peaceful scene compared with the raging Atlantic on the other coast but not always.  This old tree with its rootball  serves notice that violent weather is often a visitor here.  Click on the photograph for a larger view.  Thanks to all who visit.  I wish for you a very peaceful weekend.  See you next time.

Sand FencesSand Fences along the barrier dunes. On the Northern Outer Banks, they are usually positioned east west on the dunes to protect against Nor’Easters which in the normal course of events cause more damage to the beach and dunes than hurricanes.  I was attracted to these by the slant of the slats picking up the morning sun.  Lots of footprints but no people to be reckoned with this time of year.  Thanks for the look and have a great week.
