Wrightsville Beach Christmas

A Christmas morning 2012 sunrise at Johnny Mercer's Fishing pier. Nikon D4 with 16-35mm f/4 VRII.

 

Each year, I make the trip home for a few days of rest during the Christmas Season. ¬†Sometimes, I’m really motivated and shoot a lot of pics…and sometimes I’m not so motivated. ¬†So far this trip, motivation and weather have both been lacking. ¬†These are a few shots from my first couple days at Wrightsville Beach for Christmas 2012.
