Scenic Sunday: Sunrise at Ocean Isle Beach

Sunrise at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. December 23, 2010.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

We were treated to a spectacular sunrise on our last morning at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  We had an ocean view room at the Islander Inn, and the sun came  up just about opposite our balcony.  The rising sun seems like an appropriate first post for the new year, and so I share it with you.

    What brilliant colors in that sunrise! Very fitting start to a new year! Loved the moon eclipse from yesterday too! We had ice fog and cloud so there was no point in staying up or getting up – had I wanted to. Glad to see it on your post though! Thanks George!

    I had to come back for a second look, something I almost never do. It’s even bettet enlarged.
