Narrabeen Tidal Pool Sunrise…

by on Apr.19, 2013, under Life, Photography

I was keen to make my first visit to Narrabeen Tidal Pool count photographically, the threat of rain was nearly imminent and I’d brought an umbrella both as a deterrent to the rain but also to use as a prop. I was originally intending on using it on one of the timber boardwalks but this concrete pool edge/walkway out to the reef provided a good location to try some things.

My self portrait of sorts just as sunrise hits the horizon and the storm looms large…

NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 23 mm, 0.8 sec at f/11, ISO 100

after that it was back to the main pool to try some compositions using the boardwalk and the epic sky which was brewing out over the sea

NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 18 mm, 1/3 sec at f/11, ISO 100

finally when we were loosing some of the colour in the sky and it was nearly half an hour after sunrise it was time to get out the Lee BigStopper to try some long exposure work before the storm hit us. I had to bump the ISO a little so we didn’t get into stupid exposure time territory – this one (251 sec @ f/11 and ISO 200) looked good straight on the back of the camera and is one of my favourite shots from my visit to Narrabeen tidal pool

I’m sure I’ll be back here again to photograph some more…
