Kitty Hawk Pier at Night

I think we can all agree that good photography is all about the light; bad light, bad photo ... good light, good photo! The vast majority of photographs you see are taken during daylight hours. Many more photographs are created during early morning and early evening when the light is softer and the colors in the sky are much more vivid. But how many photographs do you see that are captured during the dead of night?

That is exactly what you see here. In this photograph the pier is receiving a double dose of light; the diffused moon that illuminates the sky and water, and a couple of parking lot lights behind the camera that illuminates the building and most of the beach. I was just tickled to find an angle that provided dual light sources that were so well balanced with intensity.
