One from a few weeks back at The Pinnacles, Cape Woolamai.
Arriving a few hours before the sunset gave me plenty of opportunity to find a nice vantage point and setup my gear and wait… Unfortuntely there wasn’t as much swell as I’d had liked but it was enough.
This is an 8 second exposure and is shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 and Cokin Z-Pro Neutral Density filters. In case you’re wondering, the B+W 110 neutral density filter very much goes back into the bag at this point of the sunset due to limited available light rendering the filter almost useless.
I was lucky to get home over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend to spend some time with friends and family. After moving to Melbourne earlier in the year, I’ve been a little lazy picking up the camera so it was nice to get out.
Originally I’d hoped to drive further but after sleeping in and almost missing the sunrise, I was limited for choice and had to make do with something close to home. This was captured from the Hobart eastern shore looking towards the city. On a clear morning Mt. Wellington is beautiful for sunrises as the light briefly hits it and gives a slight orange/purple colour like in a previous photo from Lindisfarne Bay.
For some reason my camera auto white balance was very cold which explains the blue tinge to the image but I actually quite like it.
This photo has sat in my drafts for a little too long. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I’m still bitter that a tiny wave managed to splash all over my gear. But here it is. Captured on a wet and windy afternoon at Opossum Bay, Tasmania with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 and Cokin Z-Pro neutral density filters.
