This is the beach at Bracy Cove on Mount Desert Island in Maine on September 19, 2015, 18:55 – 19:14, through the end of civil twilight and beginning of nautical twilight. The tide was going out so the rocks and seaweed were all still wet. The water flowing down the sand left hundreds of interesting channels and patterns. I selectively focused on a couple of the more interesting pebbles and a ribbon of seaweed in the sand and let the rest of the foreground and background blur out for a “bokehrama” effect, to give a more three dimensional feel to the image.
Camera settings: 400mm, f/8, ISO 31, 2 seconds.
