North Topsail Beach is a hidden gem along the central North Carolina coastline.  Dunes, sea grass, and wildlife are often seen while walking along the waterfront.  The most remarkable thing about this hidden gem is the gorgeous and vibrant colors that are reflected off the water as the sun sets over the state of North Carolina.  The soft pinks and purples begin to cover the Carolina blue sky as night sets in.

As the tide rolls out, the shoreline offers an amazing reflection as the sky turns from day to dusk during sunset.

Looking south and westward, you can see how the purple and pink deepens as nighttime sets in, contrasted by the brilliant orange in the west as the sun continues to set across the state.

The way the clouds reflect the deepening colors is remarkable, and is truly a sight to behold.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed seeing the gorgeous sunset sky over North Topsail Beach.  Please visit to view additional photographs, and to order your customizable print!
