Author: Hugh Bollinger/Saturday, September 27, 2014/Categories: natural history, photography, art and design

Here's a view anyone with a backyard fence will enjoy.

The digital image was captured in North Carolina in monochrome and is a reminder of an earlier time when long-exposure black and white film was used for nightsky photography. Commenting in a surprising fashion by NASA engineers: "the evocative black and white beach scene could be from that vintage SciFi movie you never saw, "It Came from Beyond the Dunes".

SciFi movies aside, I wouldn't mind a piece of adjacent beachfront property.
