Gossamer Twilight, Garrapata Beach, Big Sur

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 23 December 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Rather than try to reproduce what your eyes see, try understanding the way your camera sees. This image from last winter in Big Sur is nothing like what my eyes saw, but my camera's ability to accumulate light revealed things my eyes missed. I write more about it here.

A smoothy, almost steamy water with the use of your talented shutter speed technic. Extraordinary lights and colors as usuaL.

Oh yeah! Gotta get back there soon! (one of the perils of living so close is that it's too easy to "put off" going until I have the time.....There never is time if I wait for it, only when I make the time!
