“Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Whenever I visit a new place I always look into where I go to take some great photos. Sometimes those places take a little drive, but other times I can go close by. Google and Facebook have been my best resources for seeing where to go. When we travel I typically stay in our travel trailer. The first night there we are typically resting after getting everything set up. While I am relaxing on that first night I usually take the time and start to search Google with the different sites in the area. I try to find somewhere for great photos, and I try to make sure we can have some fun as a family as well. Another great resource for me is Facebook. I follow a couple of camping groups, and they have shared some great suggestions where we can camp.
This North Carolina Camping Group that I follow on Facebook suggested Jordan Lake near Raleigh, North Carolina. It look like a great place to go, so last summer I loaded up the family for a long weekend by the lake. We had a great time. We checked out the sites, we hung out at the lake, and enjoyed some great food on the grill. One the best parts was, it was pretty cheap to camp there. I researched and I found this spot to take photos at for sunset. I drove a little bit down the road, parked the truck, and hiked down the shore line a little bit. I set my camera and tripod, then I waited. Eventually, this was the scene that I observed. I didn’t get to stay as long as I would have liked to, but I still got some great photos of the lake. I loved how the sky was a different shade of oranges, reds, and blues. I defiantly want to head back, and check it out again.
