Rip Tide

by on Nov.05, 2021, under Photography

A bit after 6:20AM and almost half an hour after “official” sunrise. We’re now getting our second chance sunrise and some colour in the clouds. Better make use of it now before it quickly fades. The tide was high at this time of day and the waves were really pounding making for some interesting water movement

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S @ 14 mm, 1/5 sec at f/11, ISO 31

Shot with the Kase Filters CPL and 3 stop reverse grad filter

A few minutes after this I also stacked in the Kase 6 stop solid ND64 filter. The intention was to drag out the shutter and smooth out the water a little with around 10 to 20 second exposures. I was fully intending to process and post one of those but ended up liking the look (the stringy water) of this shot better (plus the cloud colour had vanished by the longer exposure variants)

I probably should have gone Gerry’s route and tried the Kase 10 stop ND1000 instead for some multi minute long exposures

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.
