For a change i decided to try some lighthouse shots down at Perch Rock at New Brighton , i get down there early enough to shoot as the tide comes in around the breakwater.
i am starting off round the back of the fort just as the waves are coming into the rocks. love the pattern the sky in this image.
Walking around the opposite side i have found this interesting pattern in the sand, the dogs are getting in the way all the time though!
The tide has rushed in quickly so i have moved back around to where i started, for this image using 1/6 th sec exposure at f20 .
Onto the breakwater now, the sea is coming in very fast over the shallow sand and i have to shoot fast and move back constantly as the waves are coming over the rocks and me!
1/2 sec f20
the sky is darkening which is great, giving a moody look
1/4 sec f18
this is the shot i wanted with the water flowing over all the rocks , and yes my feet got a good soaking Oooops 1/2 sec f18
the sky has really darkened and look at the rainbow :) Mollster is not bothered lol enjoying the waves now
the wind has increased and with it the waves are crashing big style now :) this is a crop from a long lens shot
she has to pose at least once :D
Another rainbow behind the lighthouse this time great stuff!
great cloud formations today , looks like heavy rain in the distance now
I need to get a good ND filter to get longer exposure to produce silky smooth water effects , its on my shopping list now :)
