Staring into the Horizon
Lens: DA 18-55 WR Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Orange Beach, AL ISO: 100

Here a few pics I took of myself standing on the beach staring out into the sunset. These are long(ish) exposures to give the waves a motion look while I'm standing still. These were pretty fun to shoot.

And I warmed up the white balance on these two to make the sand more white.

EDIT: here is one that isn't long exposure that I apparently exported from lightroom without any modification, so despite the lightroom tag in EXIF, it is SOOC.

That is a lot of standing perfectly still. Good job.

Thank you! It really wasn't too bad to hold still, the longest shot was 10 seconds. I put the camera in rear curtain sync flash so i could know when the exposure started based on the preflash and then when it finished by the rear curtain flash. The flash didn't contribute to the exposure since it was only hitting the sand, which was already fairly exposed, so it gave a good indication of when the timer had done its work.
