Stormbreaker – Glasshouse Rocks Panorama…

by on Sep.10, 2016, under Life, Photography

This is the classic view of Glasshouse Rocks on the beach at Narooma. My version I call Stormbreaker.

That spire of pillow lava rock thrust up out of the ocean. All surrounded by jagged shards of rock in the waters off the coast. It’s a surreal scene and one that has been photographed countless times. Time for me to add yet one more to the mix :).

We had dark brooding skies all around. It was just on the edge of threatening to storm down on us all.


Stormbreaker - Glasshouse Rocks Panorama

NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 70 mm, 30 sec at f/16, ISO 100 x 7 Frames

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

We’d only recently arrived and walked up the beach to this spot but I was keen to do a wider stitched panorama of the scene. I was looking to use a longer focal length to compress the view and make more of a feature of the rock spire. The water was quite choppy and rough so I opted to simplify the scene.

It was out with the Lee LittleStopper. Stacked with the polariser and a two stop Lee grad I was able to use 30 second exposures at f/16 for the seven (7) panorama frames. The end result this moody beach scene.
