I recently discovered a wonderful blog with stunning aerial photographs of Ocracoke and the Outer Banks.
Garrett Fisher (“author, adventurer & economic innovator”) and his wife are spending the winter in Corolla (horse section), working on two books - one from the air about the entire Outer Banks, and another about the wild horses.
Fisher has already published a book with aerial photography of all 58 Colorado mountain peaks over 14,000 feet, and a separate one of the entire Upper Colorado River basin. He has also made aerial photos of the 40 peaks over 6,000' in the South, and the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. These will be published in two separate books.
Click on the photo above, or here, http://garrettfisher.me/flight-nc-outer-banks-ocracoke-to-hatteras/, to see more outstanding photos of Ocracoke, Hatteras, Portsmouth and the entire Outer Banks from the air.
Be sure to view all of Fisher’s Outer Banks posts. They not only document the spectacular beauty of these fragile barrier islands, but they illustrate the dynamic forces at work in the inlets. Take a look at his map to see the exact location where all of the photos were made.
Many thanks to Garrett Fisher for permission to use his photo of Ocracoke Village. Look for his Outer Banks book at a future date.
