Nightfall at Hatteras

Having established the weekend theme of photos of water and hoping to end on the same note, I came across a series of sunset and twilight photos I took at Cape Hatteras last September. Ocean waves softly rose and fell along the beach, the sun had retired for the day and the crescent moon would soon follow suit.

A long exposure was used to catch the movement of a wave and the last bit of daylight. A number of folks who had been on the beach packed up to leave, while another group gathered around a fire they had built, ready to spend a good portion of the night.

One group finishing, another beginning. One day part ending, another beginning. The waves coming and going, keeping time through the changes.

I hope your weekend was good.

Beautiful image, James. I how it does capture that day turning into night feel, especially with the moon so well captured.
