My wife & I travel to coastal NC and many weekends that's where you will find us. Specifically in Oak Island & Southport, NC.
This particular weekend I spent just gathering various shots that were relaxing to me. I wanted to make a video that I could watch that would act as a stress reliever and remind me of our favorite places.
The end of the video includes a complete sunset. It's the first sunset I have completely filmed. I just sat on the beach and held my camera on a monopod as the sun went down. It was very spiritual and relaxing to watch such a beautiful sunset and capture it on video.
I intend to watch this video many times this fall & winter with a warm drink and just chill out and remember how much fun I had while shooting.
