Speeding up the clouds
Lens: Irix Blackstone 15mm Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Moddergat, the Netherlands ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F9 
Posted By: Fries, 03-11-2019, 03:06 PM

There was real strong wind blowing out on the sea and I tried to speed up the clouds with some long exposures. With low tide normally it is not a problem to go out on the seabed but the wind pushed the water on to the flats. I kept a good eye on my camera and tripod. It felt like only one really strong gust of wind was needed to topple everything over... I wouldn't be the first time I lost some camera equipment that way!

I do feel the effort wasn't wasted and hope you like them too!

Cheers,

Remco

Honestly, I like the first photo the best, and it would have been a lovely scene even without the ND filter.

Thanks Reh! It sure is lovely spot and has been photographed before by a lot of people. That is one reason why I used the filter. With the clouds traveling at speed I tried to make something different. But you are right. The filter isn't necessary.
