I make as many visits as possible to North Carolina's Outer Banks, but I always make an annual pilgrimage for New Years. It has always been a place where I can refresh and recharge! I was on my way home, on January 2nd. It was late afternoon, nearing sunset, and I decided to stop and check out the lighthouse, one more time and to say farewell, until my next visit. To my surprise, no one was about, and I had the scene to my self. I set up my tripod and waited for the sun to set to the point where I could see the light. As the sun set behind me, I began to see the orange reflect in the windows of the keeper's house (now a Park Service office and museum). I waited as the light turned, to catch this shot, capturing the porch lights, the reflections of the sun on the windows, and the lighthouse light.
