About Today’s Photo:
We travelled to Maine over the weekend to take in a little bit of ocean. While exploring the rocks and tide pools of Fort Foster Park, I snapped this shot of sunlight glinting off the water and rockweed. A relatively slow shutter speed and tight aperture create the wonderful starbursts and light squiggles on the water.
