Tonight’s Camera Exposure – Ocracoke Village

At first glance, this might not look like a night photo, but remember from my definition of night photography that the main requirement is only that the sun be below the horizon. When I shot this photo, the sun had set about 10 minutes earlier and although it was below the horizon, it was still illuminating the higher clouds.

I made this image many years ago in Ocracoke Village on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. In yesterday’s photo, I talked about getting lost as a means for making unique photos. Well, Ocracoke is certainly a great place to try to lose yourself, but it’s so small that the experience is always short lived. You can walk clear across the village in only 20 minutes!
