Ebb and Swirl…

Our second morning at Montague Island and our second sunrise session watching the ebb and flow of the ocean.

Unfortunately the clouds were not very accomodating this morning and very few of my images had any serious merit. I guess thats a nice way to say they were all crap :).

NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 24 mm, 123, 61 & 68 sec at f/16, ISO 100

Still I processed a few of my long exposure images to a degree I was vaguely happy with. When viewing them for selection for a blog post I noticed that three of them had by random chance almost identical horizons. So here I present a Montague Triptych of our morning session.

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.

The first a natural long exposure taken just after 5AM. The second an underexposed frame (-2EV) taken just after sunrise with a significant amount of ND filtering to hold down the sky. The last using the Lee LittleStopper to generate a daytime long exposure (at 5:55AM).
