Cloch Lighthouse

One of the guys I work with is after a wall-hanging for his living room, and is pretty set on a shot of the Cloch Lighthouse as he grew up near there. I have a few in my photostream, but very few in a horizontal orientation which is what is required.

 

As a result, I got my waders on and wandered into the Clyde this evening. Waders are great. (£17 from Aldi or somewhere like that, can't go wrong, they don't even leak!)

 

I shot a few panoramics with my 24mm ts-e, and decided to make the most of the remaining light by using my ten stop B&W filter. I've worked out that it's really an 11 stop(ish), and thanks to my fancy new android phone, no longer have to mess about with a calculator, I have an app! Technology has fianlly caught me.....anyway, it came out as between 3 and 4 minutes, so I opted for 3 and a half, which was perfect.

 

Pano to follow when I get round to stitching etc.

All of my photos are taken as one shot, unless specifically stated otherwise.
