It's been awhile since I've posted in the evening hours, so I thought tonight I would share this minimalist reflection on the Strait of Juan de Fuca ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strait_of_Juan_de_Fuca ) viewed from the Olympic Peninsula, Washington.
Note: this was a long exposure of around 12.5 minutes, you can see star trails in the sky if you look closely. It was taken when there was still a bit of ambient twilight to help light up the landscape. Finally, I double-processed the raw file, one at normal and one at +1 EV to bring out the foreground rocks (this was masked for the rocks only).
