2019 06 obx horsesThe Outer Banks of North Carolina is a paradise for photographers.  This scenic ribbon of sand offers spectacular sunrises over the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and fantastic sunsets over the waters of the expansive Sounds.

Natural areas abound (with abundant wildlife) in the Outer Banks region with 8 National Wildlife Refuges, 2 National Seashores, numerous State Parks and many other protected areas.  The 5 lighthouses (including the tallest in the U.S.) of the Outer Banks region have always attracted attention from mariners, photographers and tourists
