Berry BigStopper…

by on Nov.21, 2013, under Life, Photography

When I first arrived at the point at Berry Island Reserve – about 50 minutes before sunset – to find these absolutely fantastic colourful striped sandstone rocks, I knew it was time to bring out the Lee BigStopper before it got too dark.

The light was already dropping a little and my first testshot was about two stops underexposed so I had to bump the ISO and open the aperture a little to drag in a little more light – still this six minute (368 second) exposure with the Lee BigStopper stacked with my new Formatt Hitech 3 stop reverse grad worked pretty well with the sun still above and rim lighting the heavy cloud.
