Sunsets with a Twist...

These are all long-exposures, ranging from 1/2 second (like the first two) to 30 seconds (the last two). These photos are undoctored. They are all taken long AFTER the sun has set. And here's the twist: all of my boys (including Big Dude) are running thru some of these images. Eldest Dude was quite reluctant to participate, claiming he did NOT want to be on the blog (methinks he thought his t-shirt didn't match well his shorts ... me, rolling eyes). I promised him that his shirt wouldn't show, and neither would he. :-) Can you tell which images include my boys? I'll get you started: the first two photos include Keller men...

Those are awesome! Yeah you can see those kiddos...just BARELY.

It almost looks like something from a different world though. Beautiful!

Gorgeous. It makes me want to be there.

Love the menfolk -- they look like sci fi characters (-:

Those are so beautiful, and rather haunting! The just barely perceptible figures coupled with the sea and the light look like something out of a dream.

Oh...I want to take pictures like that! I just love them! And if you did doctor them...to mess with the saturation...would your "men shadows" go away??

Those are all amazing. And I think that beach is haunted... because you've captured some apparitions in your photos. ;)

Oh. my. graciousness.

Those are unreal. Sooo beautiful.

Susan, you make me KNOW there is something greater. How can that ever be a mistake?

Such beauty cannot be accidental.

You rocked the long exposures! I'm a sucker for that feathery water.

wow, those are amazing. I really need to sit down and figure out if my camera can have a shutter speed that long.

Those photos are amazing. Love the weird people blurs.

My eldest dude doesn't like being too exposed on the blog either (photos or stories), so I have to be careful what I share, and sometimes ask his permission if I'm not sure. Ah, they are getting older!
