Linking up with Skywatch Friday  

Edit:  I see something is happening with the word verification..I do not have it set up on my blog for word verification and I see it is still there. Must be blogger problem?  Click publish without entering the word and I think it will except the comment..


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.

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

Great colours in your photos Eileen. I especially like that cormorant on the post against the setting sun. Likewise the line of pelicans - lovely.
