This is a photo I'd been wanting to try for a LONG time. First of all - I needed a full moon to illuminate the foreground, secondly I needed a DARK sky, then I needed a beach facing south - south west and finally I needed the time to do it.

Last night everything seemed to be coming together and I already had my beach chosen - the very picturesque (and south west facing) Bluey's Beach just down the rd from Forster and a full moon I could use to illuminate the foreground but setting early.

Emily decided to get up at midnight and come with me so I convinced her to jump in the shot with me and to be honest, I love the result.

If you haven't been to Bluey's Beach in Pacific Palms it's a must visit especially on a clear night ;)
