There was a full moon rising in the darkness over Soberanes Point in Garrapata State Park in Big Sur. I could see the moonlight on the water and how it cast shadows across the small islands of rock. This long exposure shows the stars in motion with the sky appearing nearly as though it was daytime. The fog in the distance moved onshore shortly after I was finished, so I was fortunate to capture this scene.   Even though it was 
nighttime, my eyes became accustomed to the low light and I was able to see the deep blue color of the sea.  The shimmering waves took on mystical properties as I sat alone on the rocky outcrop where I had placed my tripod listening to the waves and the coyotes.  It was the mystical atmosphere that I hoped to capture on this night.
