Welcome to day 185 of 365 photos…shrimps boats are one of my favorite photography subjects, as those of you that follow this blog already know.
Mr. B and I took a drive to the very end of Cedar Island, NC yesterday where the ferry leaves for Ocracoke, NC. We were hoping to see the rocket that was launched out of Virginia. Unfortunately, we never saw it. I read later that it only appeared for a few seconds for those of us in eastern North Carolina.
It was a nice day for a drive and as you can see by the map below, it is follows along the water. The green area as you get close to the ferry terminal is the Cedar Island National Wildlife Refuge. There’s miles of nothing but saltwater marshes. It is a great place to look for ducks and birds in the spring and fall of the year during migration. Ok, now that you know where and why we were there, the photos that I took are below. Nope, not the screen shot of the map. 🙂Driving back we decided to make our way into Atlantic, NC, a tiny coastal fishing community on Core Sound. The early settlers called it Hunting Quarters. I always love stopping small harbors to photograph the shrimp boats. This time of year they are especially nice to photograph with the nets hanging and fresh paint on many of them. Hope that you enjoy the photos that I took yesterday.Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Tokina 12-28mm
Focal Length: 23mm – Aperture: f/11 – Shutter Speed: 1/100 second – ISO: 100Glad 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.
