Saturday Snapshot – The Outer Banks

Saturday Snapshot is hosted over at At Home with Books and is just people sharing a photo they have taken and telling a little about it. This week I have been down in the Outer Banks and have not really been online that much because of that. I did want to share three pictures from this week though. The first is the sunset from the first night we were here.

The second is some fun weather we ran into one day. A water twister came in off the sound side of the Outer Banks. I did not get too close to it, but I just could not resist going out to get a couple of pictures.

And the last is me playing around at night trying to get pictures of the moon. In this picture two people walked by with flashlights and I thought it looked neat because you cannot see the people, just their lights.

So what do you think? I had a great week down here and am sad to go, but all good things must come to an end an so must this vacation. How about you guys? Anyone else have a Saturday Snapshot to share?

    Great view of that twister, I guess I’d prefer to see them at that distance too.

  6. I wouldn’t have even thought to try a shot like the one with the flashlights – very fun! And that sunset is so pretty!

  7. What fantastic photos! I’ve never heard of a water twister, although it makes sense they could happen. Glad it didn’t get too close.

    I love that moon photo. It looks like a quiet, lovely place.

    Here’s my Saturday Snapshot. Happy weekend!

    • Yeah, I had not heard of water twisters either until I saw one a long time ago down there, but they are very cool to look at.

      The moon location was great, but now I have bug bites everywhere because the mosquitoes were all over me, but I am happy with the shot. :)

  8. The first picture is really beautiful, and I love the last one, with the moon lighting up a path on the sea.

  10. All these pictures are amazing! So diverse, but all incredible weather displays. That flashlights one is a neat trick!

  11. Good photos! What is a water twister?

    • Thank you! A water twister is basically a tornado that forms over the water. They can come on land, but usually dissipate when they come in contact with it. This one started on the ocean and then moved over to the sound.

  12. Beautiful pictures!!

  13. The sky looks awesome; great captures.

  14. What fabulous shots- each one is great.
