Having a hunch that there was going to be good sunset coinciding with an almost high tide at Perch Rock i drove down for an evening shoot. What i suspected was correct, a good looking sky already turning colour!
The water was already up to the base of the rocks to the right of the breakwater so i headed straight to the rocks . the tide is coming in fast which is usual here so i need to be quick setting up.
Its very calm , not a breath of wind tonight! with a long exposure to smooth out the water even more it looks like this ...........
15 seconds with Lee little stopper a 6 stop nd filter
Wonderful afterglow tonight now the sun has set , this is 30 seconds at the peak colour.
A comparison image without the long exposure 1/8 th second
Another 30 second exposure as the colour starts to fade .
and then i and a couple of other photogs had to wade back to shore as the tide cut us off on the rocks Ooops
