On March 25 of this year I published a blog about pilot and photographer, Garrett Fisher and his spectacular aerial photos of the Outer Banks.

Garrett has just published a book of his photos, Sea of Change, Flying the Outer Banks. The book is available for purchase on line, and he hopes to have them in stores on Ocracoke this summer.

In his book, Fisher observes that "the essence of the Outer Banks is change.... Sand, surf, and sky are in a constantly rhythmic state of change.... Every single time I flew, the sand, ocean, currents, inlets, and sky looked different, [and] it was a matter of wholesale surprises each time...."

Sea of Change shows the Outer Banks as "more beautiful than most of us realize" and introduces us to aspects of these islands "that people do not know..., showing these unknown and poorly accessed areas in ways that are difficult if not impossible to see on the ground."

Garrett Fisher's book is a beautiful contribution to our understanding and appreciation of this fragile string of islands some of us call home.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is Part II of Crystal Canterbury's account of her first visit to Portsmouth Island. You can read it here:


  1. I hope the book is available for purchase on Ocracoke perhaps at Village Craftsmen or Books that are Red as we'll be there in a couple of weeks.
