Grey Morning @ Warriewood…

Joined the Focus crew at Warriewood on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for a morning session on the rocks

We were planning to head around the rocks at the northern end of the beach but high tide had cut off the access. Some decided to drive around to the other side but the rest of us opted to stay and head to the southern end of the beach instead

I’d seen some shots from fellow Sydney photographer Mike Hankey from the weekend before – some lovely green covered rocks – but that was low tide and most of the rock shelf was under water today unfortunately

Another pretty grey Sydney morning again – we’ve had a LOT of rain over the past two months and it feels like it’s never going to end

Back to Warriewood – I decided to first setup on this jagged shelf at the edge of the sand whilst the tide was still rising so I could make use of it before it was completely submerged

All simply with the Formatt-Hitech 0.9 Reverse Grad stacked with the Heliopan CPL for some pre dawn long exposures and all with a touch of light painting on the foreground rocks and moss to try and bring them out a little in the darkness

This first 6:05AM (twenty (20) minutes before sunrise) is the first frame taken this morning and a lazy 133 second exposure – luck must be on my side – the long exposure guess was pretty much spot on

Hmmm – three shots taken and three keepers – perhaps my work is now done… nah…
