The sky was very clear and intensely bright as we drove from Cape Carteret towards Swansboro.
As we pulled into the parking lot behind Clyde Phillips' Seafood, the sun was just getting read to set over Swansboro.
There were a couple of other photographers already in the lot. I thought about telling them there was a rental fee on my trained sea birds, but I let it go as I headed over to my favorite spot on the western most White Oak River bridge.
I never tire of taking pictures from the bridge.
I snapped a few shots of the sun on the water and headed back to the car. I took this shot just as I got back to the car.
There is something about the time just after sunset that clears up a lot of the mistakes and problems of the day. It is one of my favorite times. You can beat the colors that you see then.
