My nieces and their friends joined us at the beach house in Frisco on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a couple of weeks. This afternoon we all decided to hit the beach at sunset to create some images.
A storm blew in early one morning so I rushed over to Manteo before first light in order to photograph the Bodie Island Light House with greater definition in the clouds. My advice to anyone going is to make sure you bring a lot of bug spray. The mosquitoes are absolutely aggressive.
The Frisco Pier, which is also known as The Cape Hatteras Fishing Pier offers easy access to Hatteras’ south beach which is well known for its world-class fishing. A popular destination for king mackerel fishermen. However, the Frisco Pier was destroyed by waves created by Hurricane Earl in September of 2010 as well as previous storms.
The Outer Banks of North Carolina offers wonderful locations for portrait photography
I recently photographed a wedding for Colin and Dana, who are from Central New Jersey. The reception was in Belmar so it was a perfect opportunity to get some great portraits on the beach before the sun came down. The images were captured with a Canon 1Ds Mark III with a 35/1.4 lens and a single Quantum QFlash T5d for my flash.
