Pre dawn capture of the street lights shinning through the trees onto the sand and water.

Came out pretty nice for a "test shot". ;^) Great color and feel in this image. It's almost like you're there on that beach. Well done!

Thanks everyone for your great comments, I do appreciate them.

I think the lights are a special colour that does not interfear with the baby sea turtles when they hatch. They hatch on a moonlight night and use the moon to find the water, if the lights are to bright they find the road instead.

I'm very proud of this photo and the series.

Great capture of the low horizon light bathing the beach...even better when parted by the trees.. Nice dreamy affect too.

The lighting here is so completely bizarre. Was this really taken at midnight? I'm prepared to believe it, but I can't make any sense of the light on the beach. I'm sure this will make the top 20 (at least as sure as can be) and I think it *should* make the top 10- but who knows. This is a great picture, but it may be too subtle for some voters. Who knows. Good luck! (9)

nice photo - but the title doesn't match. Looks like sunset, not midnight.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is exceptionally nice. And would be even more so had you only leveled the horizon... The light is utterly palpable...

This is light. 10 and 20 if I could.
