Swept Away

Bodie Island Lighthouse, North Carolina

I've been dreaming of this shot but never knew how I was going to pull it off. On Saturday morning, I decided that I was going to make the five and half hour drive to this location for sunset and come right back home afterward. I knew that if I got out in the marsh, I could get a composition that is unique since most people wouldn't dare to tread out here with all the signs that warn of deadly snakes. I was swept away by this sunset, one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever witness! No one was around for this beauty - only me standing in the marsh and the sounds of quacking ducks into the night. Then came the beautiful drive home, but it didn't matter; the excitement of catching this shot lasted a long time!
