Gold Coast Twilight…

by on Oct.05, 2012, under Life, Photography

Headed down to Broadbeach for dinner on our first night on the Gold Coast. The twilight sky was pretty amazing with some interesting clouds and great deep colour in the sky. Normally I’d do a nice long exposure on the tripod but I was just carrying the camera with the diminutive Tamron 17-50/2.8 so I took this one handheld (1/30 sec at f/2.8 and ISO 1600)

NIKON D7000 + 17.0-50.0 mm f/2.8 @ 22 mm, 1/30 sec at f/2.8, ISO 1600

The next night I went out close to where we were staying with tripod and filters to see what we could do

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

This one is just before sunset (5:30PM) with the B+W ten stop ND for a nice long exposure (3 minutes)

Purple Daze

NIKON D7000 + 12.0-24.0 mm f/4.0 @ 12 mm, 180 sec at f/8, ISO 100

and one much later (6:20PM) towards the end of twilight – another long exposure (3 minutes) but just with a CPL and 2 stop ND grad

NIKON D7000 + 12.0-24.0 mm f/4.0 @ 13 mm, 180 sec at f/9, ISO 100
