Lights from the dock, restaurants, and boats shimmer in the waters of the Potomac River.  An exposure time of six seconds allows them to blur and become colorful patterns against the deep blue of the twilight sky reflected in the water.

This photo was created by panning the camera across the already existing ripples in the water. The Potomac River was reflecting the sky at dusk and I wanted to try an impressionistic approach to this beautiful scene.
