On Monday we had a wonderful day out with G+ friends Alex and Linda who were visiting our Province. We took them to some of our favourite places on the Atlantic Coast and finally I was able to do a long exposure photograph. This is something that I've been wanting to do for over a year – since I was studying landscape photography in a mentorship by. To get the effect I was after, I needed to go to a place where there are waves and movement of water. will tell you that our waves are pathetic by the standards of those who live on the Pacific coast (and they're pretty measly in comparison to those on the coast of the North Sea, too, I have to admit). But they are the closest things to moving water that I could find. And so, with the help of and (thanks a lot, both of you) I got my tripod and camera set up, filter in place and finally achieved my goal. The cormorants on the rock were most obliging and obviously barely moved during the exposure.
So here is my first long exposure photograph. I hope to get others some day, but I might have to move closer to some 'real' waves to get them!
