When I learned that a photographer friend of mine would be hosting a workshop there, I was super excited to join them. We began our workshop that first evening at the Bodie Island lighthouse nearby on the island of Nags Head and managed to catch some nice light for sunset. Early the next morning, we returned to Bodie Lighthouse to photograph the Milky Way as it passed behind the lighthouse. I love how the windows in the house at the base of the lighthouse appear to be on fire with a glowing yellow light.
