I spent last Saturday and Sunday at Lake Mattamuskeet NWR. Lake Mattamuskeet is about 45 minutes east of Pungo lake (in Pocosin Lakes NWR). I first went to Pungo Lake but there were few photographic opportunities there, so I headed over to Lake Mattamuskeet. I didn’t have much luck with wildlife there either, but did get a couple of nice scenic shots. Above is a night shot of the old Lake Mattamuskeet Lodge/Pump Station. Below are two sunset shots on Lake Mattamuskeet, and an afternoon image of the Lake Mattamuskeet Lodge. The second sunset image is a composite of four images. I used a flashlight to light paint the different trees and dock in several shots and combined them in Photoshop. No light painting was done with the night image of Lake Mattamuskeet Lodge.
