welcome to scott taylor's photo blog

The first section of this blog is dedicated to the images in the book, “The Coasts of Carolina – seaside to sound country”, by Scott Taylor and Bland Simpson. I will explore one image per week starting with the cover including insights into the photography, the area, and other pix that didn’t make the book but were associated with the image of the week. I will also highlight adventures of a coastal photographer including portraits, weddings, and other fun stuff.

As always…enjoy the view.

Coasts - Nags Head Woods

On the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the town of Nags Head there lies the Nags Head Woods. This magical protected area is over 1000 acres of hiking trails and is open from dawn until dusk. I traveled there one fine morning just after sunrise to see what I could find.


I suggest a visit most any time of year. The scenes change season by season, hour by hour, and all are worth viewing - and photographing!

Happy trails.
