Spirits on the beach

Ahead of a stormy sunrise, people were moving along the beach, talking with others and taking photographs.  I used a 20 second exposure (with f/16 at ISO 200) with the intent to blur the water and the clouds.  When I saw how the people took on an ethereal quality in varying amounts, dependent on how long they stayed in place during the exposure, I played with that idea for a while.
