|Bodie Island Lighthouse, Outer Banks North Carolina|
Well it started out well...beautiful blue skies and wispy clouds. Chad put down the back hatch of the vehicle and settled in on the tailgate content to let me walk the grounds looking for the perfect vantage point and deciding on a lens. As you can see, the Lighthouse lens is covered for repairs...but "no worries" I thought, "the sunset would make up for that".
After about 30 minutes I could see Chad starting pacing around, it quickly became apparently what was making him nervous. This incredible storm was rolling in...fast. They don't call this area "The Graveyard of The Atlantic" for nothing. The mobile phones started ringing, our family calling to warn us of the severity of the approaching storm. My husband started to pack up. I belligerently dug my heels in. No way was I leaving till I photographed the storm. We compromised. It was worth the wait. I'm glad I didn't get the traditional sunset. This is so much better.
I'm going to post another shot from this adventure early next week. It's a slightly more spooky version. Please come back Monday to check it out!
