Nightmares are Good for Something!

Last night, before I went to bed, I noticed how beautifully the moon was reflecting off of the ocean. I wanted to get a picture, but my camera's auto function wasn't doing what I asked it to! And I did something I've been wanting to do, but was afraid - I took my camera off of Auto! And, I didn't just flip it to the "Night" setting. I put it on program, I changed the ISO. I'm very proud of myself. And this is the shot I ended up with (I can't decide which I like better and I definitely could use a tripod, but you use what you got!)

Then, around 5:25am, I woke up after having a horrible nightmare! It had everything from broken into apartments, to fights with my boyfriend, and finally, realistic pictures of ghost's at a friend's home (that would be the part that finally woke me up!) and I realized, the sunrise is in 17 minutes! So, I grabbed my camera, still in my pjs, and ran down the steps to the beach. I'm so loving the manual setting on my camera! I haven't had a chance to go through all of the pictures yet, (I just ran up from the beach, wet pjs and all!) but I couldn't wait to share!

Well, I'm going to grab some breakfast and a shower - the crafts show is today! Then I'm headed back to the beach :)
