This is the eleventh of a new series of images from across North Carolina from my travels, and from the long intervals that I have spent with my camera making a record of where I have been. Upon examination of these random images, I concluded that best format would be the one page arrangement, where I cut the images to 1280 pixels wide, arrayed in a wide viewed 'fancybox' series, where there is a title of explanation, and maybe a bit more, but mainly, the photo should speak rather than my words. In fact, I plan to put my words on hold for a bit here, which will be to the fine relief of a great many.
Each series will be random and varied; however, most will center from here in eastern North Carolina, which is closer to my home in northeastern North Carolina, in the county of Beaufort, and the county seat of Washington, my home. From this perspective, we will reach out beyond the myriad waters: fresh and calm, brackish and moving, salty with powerful waves, and get to see North Carolina, where we may know it a little better, if only through images.
This random display of images of North Carolina, made by the Tar Heel traveler, may have been revealed earlier in BCN, and when I can remember a relative series, I shall link to it; however know that this series of ongoing themes will remain that there is no theme. In this random projection of unrelated images, the series will seek its relevance, its beauty and its strength of purpose.
The Eleventh Pictorial Trek from Here to There and Back Again
We begin in Beaufort County, on a cold wintry day, lots of wind, snow and sleet as the sun, lost behind a thick bank of clouds, is sinking. That is a very good time to take a walk out on the trestle: Above. Just about 3/4 of a mile up the Pamlico River, the local sea gulls are feeling it quite a good deal: Below. photos by Stan Deatherage Click images to expand.
We leave Beaufort County, and head south to Carteret County and then along the Cape Fear River.
Here at Atlantic Beach, we discover that skim boarding is like surfing in reverse: Above. Here in Morehead City, the sun slips out from behind the clouds for an interesting vision above the Bouge Sound: Below. photos by Stan Deatherage Click images to expand.
