As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I had set out on Saturday hoping to use the fast moving clouds for a long exposure image. It has been a while since I had pulled out the 10-stop filter and played with exposures measured in minutes. As the light faded, I found myself near the edge of the lot and trying to capture the lighthouse with clouds behind and the crashing waves transformed to mist below.
In this two minute exposure, you can make out the streaks of clouds in the sky. Even more amazing is the swirls of white in the ocean. Each exposure is different when you use this technique and it always amazes me to see what happens to water when you slow things down.
