Under the Boardwalk... by stray_shooter

Under the Boardwalk...

...down by the sea...on a blanket with my baby is where I'll be. (That's an old song by the Drifters for those too young to recall). Same general location as the shot from two days ago. But it was a little darker by this time (and the tide was higher!)
Such a beautiful shot, Ron! Love the light and your perspective on this. Did you use a fairly slow shutter speed for this? Love that song!

@marmaladeskyes Wow, that was quick! Yes, it was a 1.6 sec exposure. I kept the ISO at 100, something I try hard to do in order to preserve resolution. Thanks for the comment....and for recalling an old favorite song. ;-)

Lovely capture Ron. Slow shutter speed is what required for this shot. Perfect and a fav :D

@srijit Thanks Srijit! Really appreciate the fav. I am intrigued by the results one can get from slow shutter speed shots. So many possibilities. and the colors are so much richer.

Well, I know what song will be stuck in my head for the rest of this day. Your fantastic shot here will be the image that comes to mind while my brain's singing away. Top notch capture here! I'm never going to get this sort of colorful image shootin' the Muddy Mississippi. :(

You best to date Ron IMO. Composition, light, drama and big WOW factor make for an easy fav.
