“Extreme Outer Banks Weather Photographs” – Gallery 1
If you are a weather junkie like us, chances are, you are drawn into the Outer Banks by it’s purest forms of nature. Whether it’s a peaceful sunset painted across the sky, a heat lighting display over the ocean’s horizon or a viscous sideways rain squall from the force of a hurricane, it’s undeniable in it’s every right. Some are afraid of it, some can’t understand it and others have it running through their veins like an addictive drug. Lucky for us “weather junkies”, it happens throughout the year and sometimes when you least expect it.
Capturing these unreal moments on camera are not easy either. In some cases, the photographers put themselves in danger to get “the shot”. That’s part of the allure. Some like the “risk/reward” and others simply like to be out in the elements. Either way, nature can be a humbling, beautiful thing that the Outer Banks offers with endless supply.
Below is our first “gallery” of amazing moments that happen on this magical little sandbar we call home. For more amazing photographs, make sure you click on the photographer’s website link below.
