Thirteen MINUTES? Wow. I love the glassy look of the water. This is a fantastic image. #1392673

Thanks, Michelle!

And, I could be mistaken, but I believe the single apostrophe (prime) is for minutes and the double apostrophe (prime) is for seconds. In any case, I just went ahead and wrote the word seconds, as this was not 13 minutes :) #9526787

Cannon Beach, OR
Waking up at 5am is typically not something I do unless I have to. On our trip to the Northwest, a clear exception to this was the opportunity to shoot Oregon's coast at sunrise.
This is Cannon Beach, with the very photogenic Haystack Rock on the right and the "Needles" on the left. The blur in the sky (and water) is a result of a 13 second exposure.
11/26 - N&L

Exif: f/22, 13 seconds, ISO 100
