Taking inspiration from Arun, I finally ventured out just for the sake of photography at Torreypines Gliderport. Spent slightly over an hour there. Mild breeze blowing into the face. Rejuvenating moonlight shining atop. Sweet sound of, waves caressing the shores. An good hour spent.
Something about the night photography excites me. The fact that our eyes loose most of its color perception at night implies that any long exposure photo will be unlike our visual experience. The camera sees more that what eyes sees, and that is what adds the mystery element to the photograph. Thumbnailed below are few 30 second exposure at about 10 in the night. I was completely thrilled to see an amazing color play hidden from the eye. The interface between city and the ocean made possible the contrast of blue and yellow. Interesting that is also the colors of the UC system.
