We arrived at the Outer Banks in North Carolina last Tuesday afternoon. After a quick bite, we just had enough time to go catch the sunset, captured in the following photos taken near the town of Corolla, NC in Curituck county, at the northernmost end of the barrier islands.
This is looking from the beach, where wild horses are said to roam, toward the Atlantic Ocean. We did not see any horse, but were amply rewarded by the sight of the waves and colors of the deserted beach.
After the above shot, I turned around and saw a gorgeous sunset behind a row of beach houses.
We got back to the car and drove quickly to the other side of the narrow island, looking inland. There the sunset was resplendent in its glorious colors.
