Notes

Personally, my favorite thing about this image is the cloud composition. I had hoped for these type of conditions; therefore this image had that often needed element of luck.

Description

I had an idea to capture something a little different at popular Rodeo Beach. I waited until it was dark enough, to give my shutter speed/aperture combination the chance to help create the desired result. I chose an exposure long enough to enhance the fading color and light, as well as to show movement in the clouds. Then I selected an aperture one setting away from wide open, to display the stars.
