Beach Trip Followup from Surf City

 Hey Hey its Al . I just returned October 19 from a week at Surf City, North Carolina where I enjoyed taking photographs, doing some videos for my vimeo account and I did a lot of relaxing on a hammock on the beach. I was out for sunrise a lot during my vacation at surf city. The weather was really nice and not as humid this time.  During the sunrise shot I was up really early and I was able to get tons of photographs off coastbirds and a passing fishing boat that I got during sunset conditions and tons of pictures of the moon phase and Mars while I was there.

I also get pictures of pelicans during this sunset while I was th
