This view of this beautiful beach I have photographed many times, using it as a setting in planetary conjunctions for over twenty years. Its westward view makes it ideal for this. However have an important compositional problem because if you do not have an ultra wide angle is not possible captured the whole star form. In previous images the shortest focal I used was 24 mm. Until I bought a 14 mm, in all my compositions from this point the star is cut and also the plastic beauty of your form. According to the Murphy's Law, when you have the tool you have not the conditions. In the last year it has not happened any interesting planetary conjunction, or tidal conditions were appropriate. This is very important because if the sea is flat not make the star on the beach.
This afternoon there were clouds in the sky however in the night the sky turned clear with a great atmospheric transparency. The Moon phase light on this day was 72%, a little high, but it is so difficult to combine all variables!!!.
