Snake in the Water

Late evening shot from the shores on Chesapeake Bay. The city glow in the distance on the left is from the Annapolis area. The glow on the right is from the Cambridge area on the eastern shore.

 

I take a lot of long exposures, but this one was pushing the envelope for what I usually do. 10mm, f/5, for 297 seconds at ISO-320. It was just barely picking up the remaining blue at the end of twilight. And the shot was still so dark I had to bump the exposure and shadows in post using Lightroom.
