Morning After Dark

I was thinking of titling this of "Waking up in Nature" or a "New Day II" But then the title of song just popped in my head so I used that title as the titles inspiration.
I like seeing the ridge on the east side of the bay making the feeling of isolation, and the left shows the open ocean to the north.
One more thing I like about this shot is the contrast of rocks shapes on the beach, jagged and sharp, and then the smoother rocks which I chose to step onto. There are even more smooth rocks on the beach smooth enough to be a slide. I made sure to get low enough to get some reflections in the sand of the colors from the sunset, and to make the rocks look more dominant, timeless and large. I used 2 exposures on 2 tiles for an HDR panorama. and the pink is making an appearance on the horizon from the sun below it as it will soon raise itself up into view. I was able to shoot with ISO 200 and narrow apertures the whole evening as it never got dark. though I caught a few stars that night before they vanished for the summer. Hopefully I can capture some astroscapes again soon as autumn is around the bend.
in the meantime enjoy this shot from the beach of Sandvika out on Flemsøya/skuløya/longva.
