Etherial Warriewood…

by on Sep.17, 2014, under Life, Photography

The sun was up but not to be seen, hidden behind a thick bank of cloud on the horizon. The sky was a little grey but we were bathed in soft etherial light by the giant softbox of clouds across the sky

I figured we were about to leave soon so decided to try some heavier neutral density filters for some daytime long exposures. It was still too dark to use the Lee BigStopper (10 stop ND) so I whipped out my new LittleStopper (6 stop ND) instead

I headed over onto the rocks further around the southern end of the beach where most of the others were shooting this morning and setup a composition above these jagged boulders looking down onto them and into this chasm below

The waves were really pounding in which was good because I was hoping to get some really misty action going on. The only downside of this was the spray going onto the filters which ruined quite a few of the shots

Anyway after a little impromptu cleaning this is the last shot of the morning – Lee LittleStopper stacked with the Formatt-Hitech 0.9 Reverse Grad and the Heliopan CPL for a 196 second exposure a little after 6:45AM

Then it was pack-up time and off to a hearty breakfast and chat with the rest of the Focus crew – good times indeed
