The Waves of Ida

When Ida first came roaring through the Outer Banks, the rain poured and the wind howled. Each hour, the waves increased in size.

The pier was a great place to gauge the height of the waves.

Later the sun came up, but the surf kept rising.
We believe this was the state inspector for the fishing pier.

It was interesting to see him out there with the waves crashing against the pier.

Working with slides for so many years , I have gotten into the mentality that what you see is what you get.
But with Lightroom that is not always the case and it is fun to see what can be done with the images.

Sunset on the harbor of Okacroke provided some intersting images

The piers looked like they were floating in the air.

Beach -In the Beginning

When we first hit Avon, a little over two weeks ago, the weather was sunny, cool and windy.

We thought the surf was big then, but it was just the beginning!
