Into the Light

Had a snow shower today leaving a dusting of snow across the landscape so shot down to the beach armed with my camera and Hitech pro stopper.

Got quite a few Long Exposures from along the beach which I will share with you guys.

Today I got a few pictures without any colour cast by using my custom WB and placing my camera cloth over the camera which covered the eye piece stopping stray light entering via the viewfinder.

I could have posted a couple of LE without much processing which is nice.

I got this picture of a fisherman right by my favorite beacon along the coast.

Due to the the sky being pretty much the same colour as the sea I didn't need one of my grads today as they blended into each other.


This is an exposure 178 seconds which has smoothed out the water nicely.
