OBX – Part 1: Pelicans Abound

Ahhhhh, the Outer Banks. As most of you know I got married 2 weeks ago and my beautiful wife and I honeymooned in the Outer Banks of NC. The house we had was on the beach and it was just awesome! Of course I had my camera with me and I was shooting away. This means that the blog post hiatus is over as proved by this post!

This post is dedicated to the pelicans of the OBX. They were everywhere! I have never seen so many in my life. One group we counted was over 40 strong, all flying in formation. Very very impressive.

The shot above was at sunrise from our deck. It is one of my favorite shots that I took all week!

This next one was also at sunrise.

With all the pelicans flying about I stared thinking of unique perspectives. I was laying back in my chair and looked straight up as a group flew over and was struck by the site. In these next couple I tried to catch that feeling.


We loved to watch them skim the waves. Very graceful fliers.

Come back soon for more shots from the OBX including some sunrise panoramas and more wildlife!
