Default Some random shots from the OBX ;)

It all started with a sunrise...




Then some birds...






... or torpedoing tern:




My kayak resting on a sandbar with the D800 sticking up (as I shot it with the MrkIII):




... With some seagull playing by:




Now back to the beaches:

Lovely shot on the red sunrise! Fast timing on stopping the tern before it hits the water. Now I know the environment you are in when you do your shooting: the water is not always calm when you are out there. I really admire your courage going out there when the water is seemingly rough (at least to me).

Thanks - I'm not that brave !

All my kayaking are done on the sound side and not the Atlantic: http://maps.pbase.com/nhl/image/151894128

The water is a lot calmer... and the weight of the two cameras tend to help with the bobbling
