19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
On the Rocks, Atlantic Beach, NC

Beautiful late evening walk with my fiancé along Atlantic Beach in North Carolina. The way that the waves would come rolling in and push against the jetty was so amazing. The contrasting colors of the ocean, the rocks, and the sand were stunning as the sun added different elements of beauty to each. North Carolina is certainly known for it’s gorgeous beaches and from this image, I am certain you can understand why.
