Going Long at East Point…

by on Aug.08, 2015, under Life, Photography

When we were at East Point the other day I’d seen some lone mangroves out in the water which I thought I may be able to craft a composition out of.

So I decided to head there by myself before sunset to try my hand at my first real sunset shoot up here in the top end.

Unfortunately the tide was quite high and so my previously chosen trees were mostly underwater – undeterred I searched for some other opportunities.

This first was at East Point and is a 93 second exposure with the Lee BigStopper stacked with a Lee 0.6 GND.

Note: These photographs (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.

I then returned to the car and left East Point and drove to Nightcliffe to check out another spot I’d seen on Google maps and TPE which looked like it might have promise.



NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 27 mm, 41.00 sec at f/16, ISO 100

With the lowish tide there were some quite nice isolated high and dry mangroves to work with along the rocky shore.
