Welcome to day 195 of 365 photos…the photos today are of the wild ponies as seen from Beaufort on the Rachel Carson Reserve. The reserve is across Spooners Creek. Mr. B and I came to Morehead City this morning, separately together. I had a dentist appointment and he needed to take his truck in for a repair. While the truck was being repaired and after my appointment, we met and drove in my vehicle to Beaufort. We have lived in this area for almost three years but this is the first summer that we have spent here.
We have driven through Beaufort MANY times since we moved here, looking towards the Rachel Carson Reserve and Carrot Island trying to see some of the wild horses. Today was surprising because we saw three different groups of them. They really didn’t care about all the tourists paddling around them. Needless to say, my 400mm lens was not quite long enough, but I thought I would share a few of the photos that I took.
Our granddaughter will be here for a visit next month and she and I will have to take a kayak trip out to the island for some better photos. Until then, here a few from across the “creek”. Keep in mind, these were taken in the middle of the day, across the creek and it was quite hazy.
Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 80-400mm

Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.
