baby sea turtles [52:33]

Last night, I finally got the chance to attend a sea turtle hatchling release. It was an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Because the baby turtles find the ocean by heading towards the brightest light (the moon reflecting off the waves), we weren't allowed to have any lights. The staff running the release had red LED flashlights but otherwise, it was pitch black. I bumped my ISO, focused manually, steadied my arms, and hoped.
