By the time I started setting up for this shot, it was getting to dark even for long exposures. But I could still see hints of colors and motion that I knew would make great effects. The sunset was already gone by almost 2 and half hours, but the slightest glow remained. Being the last photograph of the day at Klamath Cove near Redwood National Park, I took my time watching where the waves stopped and painting the foreground with a flash light. Waiting for the almost full moon to move into place a couple more hours and the final exposure was completed. In all, this image is a fusion or still time lapse of about five hours. I love how the tops of the rock grouping is crisp against the fading sky and the full texture of the waves and sand below create dramatic feature elements in Atlantis.
