Ocean Isle Sunset

One of the beauties of our barrier islands is their geographical orientation being one of east to west which provides us with breathtaking sunrises and sunsets over the water. I was lucky recently in being able to catch one of our sunsets from  a few different perspectives on the island. I hope you enjoy the photos.

I love the colors of the pilings during a low tide sunset

The sago palm provided the perfect frame for the setting sun

Sun setting along the marsh on the west end of the island

I liked the contrast of the monochrome foreground against the pastels of the sky
