Shipwrecked After Dark

Santa Barbara Photo of the Week by Bill Heller, click to enlarge.
If you have to be shipwrecked, this is a nice place to do it. Every so often a sailboat slips its mooring in the Santa Barbara area, and it seems more often than not they end up on Butterfly Beach. This shot is from a year or so ago, but I stumbled across it again when I was searching for an image. The exposure was quite long (well long for cameras these days anyway) taken well after sunset, which created kind of a dreamy quality. Well, dreamy unless it’s your boat! -Bill Heller
