Vision issues resolved, I have started taking photographs in the South Bay again. This set was taken in very low winds along the western stretch of the levee that separates former Salt Pond E9 from E14. Salt Pond E9 has been open to the tides for a decade or so.
I am taking these documentary photographs under a Special Use Permit from the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge. Kite flying is prohibited over the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve without a Special Use Permit.

This photo was on my to do list for a couple of years. Last friday I had the opportunity to make it. This is the lighthouse of Ouddorp, called Westhoofd. And yes, this is the real Milky Way. I didn't photoshop the sky in it or something like that. I made 15 the same exposures of 6 sec. I couldn't exposue longer because of the light of the lighthouse. I stacked the 15 exposures to get of the noise and to make the stars better visible.
