I went to Fort Macon on the 1st day of the decade and photograph the sunrise. When you get two to three days of gorgeous weather, you need to take advantage of it. On January 1st, there were several photographers doing the same. On New Year Eve, I was the only one out there.
I used the Nikon D7100 Camera with Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm |4.5-5.6 G E D zoom lens. The following are photography of the sunrise in Beaufort Inlet with Cape Lookout in the background. I also played around with taking pictures of the waves crashing in the coastal barrier.
