Starlight and Moonlight on Little Corona, Newport Beach

When I was a kid growing up in Newport Beach, we would often visit Little Corona beach and see tons of black abalone. They would be clinging to the rocks, and empty ab shells would be hidden in the all the tidepools and pockets of water. The abalone are long gone (as is my youth!), but some of the nostalgia remains. I spent a few hours shooting Little Corona under a full moon and came away with one image with which I am happy. Little Corona is a fine spot, relatively secluded, quieter and much less crowded than Big Corona Beach. In this photograph, ankle-slapper waves are blurred during a long exposure made by the light of the moon. Cheers and thanks for looking!
