Welcome to the online home of theOBXBeachBum!
Hi, I'm Roy Edlund, theOBXBeachBum, much love for dropping by.
There is an Emerson admonition, "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."
Well, my OBX beach photography is my way of capturing the beautiful and carrying it with me. I love the raw wildness of our ocean landscape. Spending time behind the lens of my cameras is where I can melt into it and become one with it.
I'd like to say that I only take shots that move me, but honestly, whenever I am on the beach, my soul is moved and I shoot a lot.
Anyway, I appreciate that you've taken notice of my work knowing there are hundreds of talented Outer Banks photographers on the beaches for you to follow.
Like the sandbar we live on, this website is going to be in a constant state of transition, as I learn what this web software is capable of and as I find my footing as an OBX photographer.
So, while you're looking around, be careful where you step, cause there's always bound to be some wet paint and things that are a little bit messy... Oh, and you should be aware that if you break something, I'll know. :)
