The Best Photo My Camera Took For Me

Challenge #1 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is for photos that you caused to be taken, but not by looking at a viewfinder or live display and pressing the shutter button when you wanted the picture taken. It might be that you set the self timer or used a wireless remote control so you could be in your photo, or it might be that the camera was triggered by motion detection to capture lightning (as many CHDK users do) or wildlife on a trail, or perhaps you selected one of a long sequence of shots automatically taken by a head-mounted sport camera or a camera hanging down from a kite.

9th place
This photo made using camera timer, with 30 sec exposure during pre-sunrise time at Atlantic Ocean. Most challenging was to stand still in small waves during 30 sec exposure due sinking sand. RAW to JPG conversion is only processing.
