Fading Light…

by on May.18, 2017, under Life, Photography

I climbed the stack of rocks out here at Cape Banks to shoot from up higher back towards this lovely little lighthouse as the light was fading to night.

Up first is an eight (8) vertical frames stitched panorama taken at the long end of the Nikon 16-35.

NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 35 mm, 25 sec at f/8, ISO 400 x 8 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.

The light was fading rapidly now so I had to be quick before twilight turned to night. I pushed the ISO a little and opened the aperture a touch.

With the source frames for the pano complete it was time for one natural long exposure with the camera switched back to horizontal. Six (6) minutes later we were done and it was time to head back to the car (and my daughter waiting patiently there :)).
