Bixby Bridge by Starlight

I’ve enjoyed photographing the dramatic Bixby Bridge on the Big Sur coast at night over the years, and it is always fun to take a workshop group to the location. Getting out of the car, it is hard at first to see much in the inky blackness except that it is a long way down to the Pacific Ocean. As things resolve, it becomes clear that one can create interesting images, provided one keeps the camera open long enough, since there really isn’t much light. But in this case the camera sees more than we do!
