Photography ~ The OBX Experience, 01/20-01/21

Kill Devil Hills–North Carolina Outer Banks

This was a quick one-night trip with three targets sets of photographs: 1) 01/20 moonrise; 2) the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse; and, 3) 01/21 sunrise. For the most part, clouds were a challenge. They blocked seeing the Sunday evening moonrise and the Monday morning sunrise–ruling out seeing the moon and sun shimmering on the ocean as they peak above the surface.

Nonetheless, there are some good captures in this group. I will do this shoot again–less the lunar eclipse, but closer to home next time–maybe Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina [its’s the closest to me].

Stay tuned…
