Rangitoto @ Dawn

    Newer Older

    I got up at 5:30 this morning, which for me is completely ridiculous. We've been getting foggy mornings recently, so I made sure things were clear before I left. As I drove over the harbour bridge, it got foggy as hell and I thought the early rise was going to be a waste of time.

    After I stopped swearing I decided to carry on anyway and see if I could salvage something. Luckily as I got closer to the beach the fog cleared and I managed to get a few decent shots.

    This was taken with my 10-stop ND filter with an exposure time of 35 seconds.

      Awww man, you've made someone in Scotland's day with this absolutely beautiful shot. Love the warmth, the low rises and the gorgeous smoothness of the water.

      yeah it is a boat out on the water - thankfully it kept still for the long exposure! Not sure if that's a lighthouse on the island or not... I don't think so.

      Spectacular. Rangitoto is so iconic, and your photo really shows it! I should be seeing it again before a week is out!

      Great shot. I've just seen this in one of Craig Potton's 2010 calenders. Well done!
