A Race with the Light

February 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So it's getting close to the "Golden Hour" and I'm trying to finish a game of Monopoly with the family.  Luckily, we all grew tired of it at the same time and I was able to get out for what would hopefully be a few decent shots of...something... at sunset.  I hopped into the car and headed directly into the golden light for downtown Wilmington.

Despite the fact that I've walked the river and streets what seems like a thousand times, there's always something to find, especially when you have such a quaint historic town like we do that borders the Cape Fear river.  Besides, the challenge of finding a new nugget and coming away with a good shot in a familiar area always puts me a great mood.

This is where I think many people might not appreciate the time it takes to find that keeper.  

I hit the riverfront and scouted for something good, couldn't find it, drove on, parked and searched a different area and finally headed back towards the battleship USS North Carolina now that the sun was finally in silhouette.  

While I've taken many shots, a good sunset can always open up new opportunities.  I think it did with this one, and I hope you like how it turned out.
