This is a view of Oak Island beach which is just South of Cape Fear, North Carolina. Here the sandy shore actually faces south so that the summer sun rises over the dunes to the Northeast. A pre-dawn shower can be seen slowly moving out to sea. This part of the Atlantic Coast is known for unpredictable weather and dangerous shoals accounting for untold treasure lying on the ocean floor not far from this location.
