In December my Beautiful Bride and I made a quick trip to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  Ocean Isle is one of our favorite places to be, and it is near Calabash, North Carolina, which has some of the best seafood found on the east coast.

The weather in December isn’t always the greatest, but in December we often have the beach to ourselves.

It was overcast the afternoon we arrived in Ocean Isle, but the afternoon light, the clouds and the water made a beautiful picture.

I was fortunate enough to capture some sunbeams breaking through the clouds in the late afternoon.

    Wonderful photos. In the last photo sun is shining in the middle of clouds. Few days ago I saw here same kind of phenomena – heavy clouds and a hole thru which sun shined.
