Pier at Ocean Isle Beach

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The pier on Ocean Isle Beach is a busy place in summer, but it was deserted when we were there last month.  We can see it from the balcony of our room at the Islander Inn.  Even in winter it's a beautiful sight, especially with the reflections in the wet sand left by a receding tide.

With joy I took a walk after the pier, even now. Beautiful place and photo. Yours.

Why do piers and/or pilings make for great pictures? Great shot and reflection. MB

A beautiful composition that looks even better when enlarged. The empty pier is atmospheric. I can just imagine people fishing at a different time of year.
The palms look as if they are in good shape considering the winds that must blow across the beach.

This one is just wonderful, a combination of God's work and man's.

I think the fact that there's not snow coating the entire thing is what makes it beautiful.

Linda said...
