For yesterday’s shot I had gone over to the front beach early to setup my tripod by the water and to wait for the full moon to rise. This buoy was lying near the spot I had setup and the colors called out to be captured. It was a rather cool night and most people were inside. A few people had setup their bonfires so I knew they would be coming back out. However, for a good half hour or more it was just me enjoying the stillness of the beach.
