Aliso Beach - Line of Fire
This photo was taken after sunset at Aliso Beach in Laguna Beach, CA facing north. An at first uneventful sunset changed into a late quick (about 10 min) line of fire in the sky just above the horizon. It required some quick rock climbing, wet feet and sandy camera equipment to get this shot. On the far left you can see Catalina Island. Also notice the heavily corroded beach.
3 blended RAW exposures (ISO 100, 10mm, f/8.0, 1.0s, 2.5s, 2.5s), Canon EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5 USM, no filters, Photoshop CS6 for blending, pre- and post-processing with Lightroom 4.
