Sunset over Currituck Sound, North Carolina

Sunset over Currituck Sound, North Carolina

This sunset saturates the water and air with a subtle fullness. The sea seems to be pregnant with its own depth. The air is filled with a hushed silence. The crickets suspended their symphony to honor the sun falling asleep under the watery covers.

    The 2nd image is so simple yet surreal; almost soothing the ripples – love the orange, blues and black. Amazing, really!
