Hey everyone! I usually post a master comment like this to answer some frequently asked questions before they arise.

This photograph was taken from Satellite Beach, Florida (looking east over the Atlantic Ocean) just after sunset on July 30, 2018. This week was the time in which Mars was at opposition to the sun (good for bright viewing). The reflection on the water was visible to the naked eye and enhanced by a long exposure photograph.

Gear/Settings:Nikon D750 and 24-70mm lens. (ISO 1250, f/5, 10sec)
