Obviously the best place to get a view of Oak Island at sunset is the bridge over from the mainland. Unfortunately one has to park the car and brave the traffic by walking up on the median. Always wary of cellphone users, it makes things a little hairy, but worth the effort as the sunset this night was spectacular. I don't often photograph sunsets, choosing to appreciate them more than work them. Sometimes you just have to sit back and just enjoy. This night I was able to do both.
