Turimetta Dawn…

by on Apr.01, 2013, under Life, Photography

After my little light painting exercise with some rocks at Turimetta beach some of the FOCUS crew were arriving for twilight and sunrise so I joined them for a pleasant morning of shooting and chatting followed by some nice breaky nearby.

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.

It’s 6:30AM and about 20 minutes before sunrise so it’s time for some long exposure seascapes – 16-35/4 at 19mm, 61 sec @ f/11 and ISO 100

The seas this morning were really rough and the waves were relentlessly battering the coast

I headed back to the rocks where the seas were coming in a little higher and washing over the shelf under the rocks. I setup for some shots with the waves coming in under the rocks and… well.. was lucky my gear wasn’t washed away… got the shot tho 🙂

This was the first time I’ve ever shot under base ISO (ISO 100) on this camera – however I needed a slower shutter, I was already using a CPL to cut a few stops of light and didn’t have time to setup with an ND – 16-35/4 at 19mm, 0.6 sec @ f/11 and ISO 50
