Oregon Inlet sunset

North Carolina's outer banks are a sting of long barrier islands situated about 12 miles from the mainland in the Atlantic ocean. Each is separated by an inlet linking the ocean to Pamlico Sound. The Oregon Inlet separates Bodie Island from Pea Island. The bridge in the background of the photo above links the two islands.

It was here that my wife and I witnessed the spectacular sunset above, then stuck around for the moonset a little while later.

I particularly like the colors in this sunset/twilight photo. They are marvelously soft and whispered.
