OBX Beach Fence #10339
This beach and sand dunes scenery is a good example of the miles of very beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches in the Outer Banks. People are naturally drawn to an ocean beach. With this picture, it doesn’t take much to feel and smell a warm salt air breeze while hearing the surf rolling in.
For the OBX communities, it’s a matter of great civic pride to keep their beaches well maintained. There are miles of erosion control slat fence and the beaches in the Outer Banks towns are usually raked and groomed every night as well.
This is a very unusual image being that it is a sunset shot of the Atlantic Ocean taken on the east coast…and just how, you ask? The sun is setting behind the camera position rather than in front of it over the water. I enjoy how it gives the sand and fence a deeper glow from the natural yellow light, and how the light skims across the ripples and footsteps in the sand.
Location: the Outer Banks near Nags Head, Dare County, North Carolina.
