Thematic Photographic 63: "Summer" - v.1.0 "Topsail Of The Mornin'"


"New Day Dawning"
North Topsail Beach, NC - July 2009 (Click to embiggen)

I suppose it's odd that the first shot of the new "Summer" theme would come from the last day of my recent trip to Topsail Island, but I caught some of the most spectacular sunrise shots that day (once my lenses quit fogging up that is). I normally think of "vacation" as a time when you turn off the alarm clock, but these scenes were well worth getting up before dawn for. And besides, once the morning light's gone, I can always take a nap before the evening light comes, right?

Thank you for getting up early to show me that the sunrise is as pretty as the sunset.
