Malabar Waiting…

It was a grey old morning with heavy cloud across the horizon. As we were waiting there were hints of colour popping through occasionally as sunrise approached. This take with the Lee LittleStopper to drag out the exposure to a tick over 200 seconds for a moody desolate feel.

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.

Then I was keen to have a play with my stupendously wide Laowa 12mm lens in landscape mode with polariser and grad filters. First up a reprise of an earlier shot with the 16-35 getting in very close to some of the local greenery.

Now close up with the insanely ultra wide on the bunker. The lack of distortion on this lens is remarkable given the ridiculously wide angle of view. Even with the horizon well offset (camera angled significantly off level) it stays straight and true.

The sun is well and truly up now and Gerry says it’s time to go :). One more hail mary shot before we pack up… Love the cool rock tho :)…
