A shot of Main Street at dusk
Last June we vacationed at Carolina Beach, NC. I headed out early one more to capture images of the Boardwalk before it became crowded with tourists. As I look at these images I notice a lot of things I would have done differently if I was to shoot this location again. I think I would like to go back and shoot this at night with the crowds, lighting, and motion. At night this location comes alive with many activities. I think it would make for much more interesting photos. Perhaps I’ll get an opportunity to do this before summer is over.
I shot the photos below with my phone during our vacation last June. The location was Sandbridge Beach, VA. The forecast for the day was to start off cloudy and become sunny by afternoon. The sun never arrived. A dense fog developed over the water and presented a unique lighting and atmospheric condition.
