Bodie Island Lighthouse at Night
Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene caused quite a bit of damage to the Outer Banks recently, including some damage to one of my favorite lighthouses, Bodie Island. Because of the damage, the light was inoperable during my recent trip to the OBX. With that said, however, I was extremely happy with how my long-exposure shots turned out, because of the fact that the light wasn't on. The relative darkness allowed me to do a 25-sec exposure, showing all of the stars perfectly.
