The Buxton Jetty

from 50.00

Although this may not be one of my "most liked" shots, the best compositionally, or the best light - it is still one of my favorites because of the awesome location and the story behind it.  I will be one of the first to order this print for my wall.

I found this jetty on a friends website and had to have my own. Trouble is, like most features on the Outer Banks of North Carolina; this was not on any maps and no one seemed to know where it was located.  A few obscure articles pointed to the fact that it was near the Hatteras Island Lighthouse, (the tallest in the United States) which had been uprooted and relocated a few years back due to the rising seas.  Given that the nature of a jetty is to keep back the ocean from a particular area, it sort of made sense that this jetty would be located near the old location of the lighthouse.  It was on our way to the ferry anyway so why not.  Of course by the time we got there the good light had faded and the ocean had become extremely rough but it provided for a very interested foreground with the water rushing up and onto the beach.
