Welcome to day 286 of 365 photos…Is it a beach tractor or a tractor on the beach. Actually, it is both. So what is the tractor doing on the beach? Even though driving on the beach is permitted (with a permit, of course) – driving a tractor on the beach is not allowed under most circumstances.
This tractor is set in place waiting for a North Carolina fishing tradition – a Mullet Blow. The Blow, so named because the mullet run down the beach heading south as the cold Northeast wind cools the water temperature. It is tradition that is kept alive by a handful of fishermen who continue to catch mullet as they have for over a hundred years on Bogue Banks, a barrier island in Carteret County.

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.
