I am sharing some photos from our recent trip to Nags Head in the Outer Banks, North Carolina... These are some sunset shots taken the first evening after our long drive to North Carolina.. We enjoyed seeing the sun setting and a great view of the moon.

  2. The moon shot is wonderful, and the sunset over the ocean. I love to see pelicans flying by, their outlines remind me of pterodactyls.
