I am lucky enough to have access to miles of amazing coastline on Vandenberg Air Force Base and given the nature of the location you are often the only person out with a camera. This was captured in early February and the light on the drive in was not promising a great deal. The sun actually rises behind the camera and to the left but the marine layer was stubbornly remaining in place in that direction. Deciding to concentrate on some long exposures I started noticing the faint pink glow was becoming more prominent yet remaining subtle enough that it wasn’t overpowering. I increased the shutter length to 70 seconds. Despite doing a lot of long exposure and having a reasonable feel for what the outcome will be, I find there is nothing in landscape photography to match the excitement, and relief, of seeing a long exposure appear on the back of the screen.
