Mona Vale Panoramic…

by on Jul.16, 2016, under Life, Photography

Time for a nice wide stitched panorama at Mona Vale tidal pool. Whilst out with friends at this lovely location one morning.

This is the result from stitching six (6) vertical frames taken at a wideish 19mm at 8 seconds each frame. I was also using my trusty Heliopan CPL and the Format-Hitech 3 stop (0.9) reverse grad to hold down the very bright sky. At this stage it’s about 10 minutes till sunrise.

Morning Glow - Panorama at Mona Vale

NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 19 mm, 8 sec at f/11, ISO 100 x 6 Frames

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. Click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

I’ve been to this location before but never actually really shot here before (at least not for sunrise or sunset). It’s one of those places like Turimetta Beach that has been shot to death in every conceivable way but it’s “new” to me so… 🙂

Having now shot my panorama at Mona Vale it was time to move on…

After sunrise I was trying to take some images with some rushing water across the pool. As you can imaging the filters copped quite a bit of water spray so I gave this up pretty soon after this :).

Then it was off to a well earned breakfast and hours of conversation at the local beachside cafe. Good times…

One day I’d like to come back when there’s a stormy king tide and shoot it with water flowing everywhere… one day… 🙂
