Painting Point Dume

After the sun finally set last night over Point Dume State Park in Malibu, CA, I decided to set up my tripod, being careful not cause any damage the numerous mussels surrounding me, and took in the stunning view set out before me…  The sky began glowing with the most beautiful colors, giving me the perfect backdrop to the blurred motion of the crashing waves in front of me.  This is a 2.5 second exposure I shot on my Gitzo Traveler tripod with on camera timed release.  Doesn’t it look like an oil painting to you?

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
