I used to go to this beach a lot, decades ago. Lovely comp.
Ron thank you. I’m just leaving to walk the beach. It’s low tide so it is a lot easier. My wife Jane Ingram Allen is here doing an artist in residence with the park service.
Ron thank you
Thank you Rawls. There’s a lot of light pollution here thus the brighter right side.
It’s so beautiful! Love when you can actually see the Milky Way.
Hannibal thank you. Ironically I couldn’t see it until I processed in Lr 6. There was too much light pollution. I know where it is because of the Photo Pills app.
It’s a pity that there’s often so much light pollution you need to really edit your pictures to see them. But at least we have some technology to help us with that 🙂
Yes it is a dyes it’s good to have that technology.
Lovely photo Tim
I would like to step in this image! really nice!
Belinda thank you. Yes I agree it would be nice to be able to transition from one place to another.
In the quiet of time
which cannot exist
there is a moment
yet so familiar
it feels like home
Thank you for adding your impression of this place and image. It is very nice.
A very beautiful image-the colors are amazing!
Thank you. I really enjoy doing this type of photography.
Lovely composition! I haven’t had an opportunity to see the Milky Way at sea level yet.
Thank you Vijesh, I was envious of your photos because you had such little light pollution. The images taken of the Milky Way over Fire Island were difficult because of the light pollution from New York City. That was mostly encroaching from the lower right corner of the image. This shot, https://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com/2015/08/17/night-sky-over-squaw-valley/ was taken in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Lake Tahoe. The light pollution was less there. Since you are interested in night photography I would suggest that you explore PhotoPills.com They make an Apple apps that is the best for photo planning that I’ve ever used.
Best to all of you photographic efforts and thanks for spending time looking at my images.
