I've been digging through shots from old photo trips again :) This is a shot I never processed from my trip to Staniel Cay (in the Bahamas) in November 2011. The moon was bright enough that my brother and I kayaked after I took this photo all the way out to the bright island in the distance on the far left...we had no problem seeing. I have to admit, I was almost drunk when I took this....we were in the Bahamas celebrating because my brother and (future) sister-in-law were getting married there. I set the tripod on the rocks and walked away to go drink some more, then came back when I told my brother "I think it's been long enough". With a drink in your hand, 380 seconds isn't that long to wait :) 6 minute 20 second exposure.
