Late August full moon, shining off the sea.
The lights on the horizon are fishing boats. Sometimes there can be many. The locals joke that they are the streetlights from a morrocan sea-side boulevard or strip.
The streetlights lighting-up the caravans are actually high pressure sodiums and emit their characteristic salmon-orange light, but I performed a custom white balance, metering off the white wall behind me that was also bathed in this orange light. I didn't have a tripod on hand so handheld it was taken for the duration of it's 1.3 second exposure with me bracing against the balcony. I shot it at iso 1600 so it's a little grainy, but i'm quite happy with the result. This picture is as it came out of my camera with no post-processing as are all my latest pics posted and future ones, reflecting my change in attitude and embracing in-camera processing as much as possible.
