One of my photo mantras is “don’t forget to look in your backyard.” Often we are lead to believe that to find great photo opportunities we need to travel to exotic locations that require great amounts of time and expense. While I do not knock the idea of photographing in a variety of locals, it is always a good idea to pay attention to what is around you, which was the case with this photo shot across our fence into a neighbor’s yard one morning where a blue heron decided to take a break.

Wild, Wild Horses at the Outer Banks, N.C.

I first started going to the Outer Banks of North Carolina when I was a teenager, many moons ago. Back then, most houses on the Outer Banks did not have pools and none that I knew of had elevators. The drive to Nags Head winded through small towns on two lane roads, inspiring the Mary Chapin Carpenter song “I am a town.”

While this has changed with the addition of a bypass and acres and acres of large houses with pools and elevators, the beauty still remains, and so do the wild horses. I had always heard about the wild horses of Corolla on the northern end of the Outer Banks but had not actually seen them in person until late last month, when we signed up for a tour led by Horace at Corolla Wild Horse Tours A tour I would very strongly recommend.
