Whooosh!

Explored: Jul 24, 2010 #78 Thanks to all who helped it get there :)

 

I had a client shoot on King's Beach today on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. I decided to drive up early for a chance to shoot a sunrise at Dicky Beach.

 

It was a high-ish tide though still not coming in over the whole wreck, only the lower half and It's a shame the sunrise didn't put on a better display for me but still, I'm quite happy with the streaky wave action. These streaks are actually from a receding wave and you can see the next wave starting to come in at the tip of the old ship. I recently made the leap to Lee filters and am really glad I did. The holder has a great build quality and the filters themselves offer beautiful clarity to your image.

 

Taken with a Canon EOS 40D, Sigma 10-20mm lens and Lee 0.9 hard grad.

 

After a good hour here I still had two hours until the client shoot so I trekked off to Buderim Forest Park to grab some shots of Serenity Falls. The overcast sky would be perfect for some waterfall photography. I don't have a neutral density filter to fit my Lee holder yet (or a polarizer ) but I could slide my grad all the way over the lens to give the same effect. I would have liked to spend more time at the falls but it started to rain and I had to get back to the beach for the shoot.
