The previous day there was an amazing colorful sunrise, and I didn't go anywhere to photograph it. :-(
So the next day I decided to drive to a remote section of Florida beach to avoid people and to try for a sunrise photo. I hit the road at 3:30 a.m. for the hour drive to my selected location. After parking at a location where I would not have my car towed or ticketed and started my 2.5 mile walk to the beach. The clouds were dark and thick and I had a sinking feeling I would not have a gorgeous sunrise with colorful clouds. When I arrived at my location there was no hint of a rising sun and the surf was crashing against the rocky shore line. As if on cue, the moon found a break in the thick clouds and lit the rocks just off shore. I managed 3 quick shots before the clouds once again blocked the moon light. The first shot was too dark, the second was interrupted by a wave spraying me, my tripod and camera (my camera was wearing its raincoat--I was not) and the third----well, you decide how well Luna touched the scene.

PLEASE USE THE DOWNLOAD AND VIEW ON A DARK BACKGROUND.

Thanks for looking.

The Phosphorescence really glows as if lit from inside.

Thanks for commenting. Moon light can be fun to work with. It seemed to very moody.

This type of image always makes me feel like I've worked to create something.
This almost makes me feel like van Gogh's "Starry Night.

So glad you liked it.

I think what makes this work is all the moving water (which was wild, rough and loud--it had boomers) and the semi long shutter speed to catch the highlights on the waves.

Thanks so much for looking.
