The Rock at Midnight

  • The Rock at Midnight

This is my favorite image taken on a mid-August night shortly after midnight.  After spending some time at Devereux beach, I headed across the causeway to Castle Rock.  I tried to capture the waves below and the stars above and was very pleased with this result when I loaded it on the computer at home.  This is a seven minute exposure and, in that time, you can see the effects on the waves turning the churning water to mist.  Also, the movement of the Earth relative to the stars is shown by the curved star trails in the upper left corner of the sky.

    Fantastic Photo! Are those the lights from Boston in the mid-left section of the photo? Also, what is the price of your 2012 calendar? I love it! I used to love sitting in this spot when I was living in Marblehead during the 60’s… This is right down the street from my home at 18 Ocean Avenue! Best, Chris Brill.
