    these are some beautiful photos. i’ve been doing a couple of long exposure beach photo’s myself, though nowhere near as nice as these. do you use a dark filter to shoot when there’s still light as this is the thing i find most difficult?

    • Hi James,
      Yes I find it necessary to use filters on the front of the lens in order to get the long exposure times required.
      In the case of these shots I had an ND8 filter and also a polarizing filter screwed on the front.

      Cheers, Jim.

  3. Lovely pics. Awesome.

    Which camera and which lens?

    • Hi Rohit, the lens used for the seascape shots is the Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC.
      The camera is a Canon 40D, although I think the brand of camera is not so important these days. The top manufacturers all do a fine job producing excellent machines.

      • I understand. But lenses do matter. The lens you have used do I guess is a very good one.

        Have you uploaded your pics of flickr or anything like that? Could you provide me the link?

      • Hi Rohit,
        The Sigma lens is not an expensive one.
        It can be bought here in Australia for under $700 at a retail store.

        The Flickr address you requested is as follows –
        Note that I only upload low resolution versions there because I would prefer people to buy the high resolution prints through my RedBubble site at

        Cheers, Jim.

  5. Breathtaking! I would sooo love to visit this place. The scenery alone would provide an astounding amount of inspiration for a writer such as myself. Amazing and very impressive!

  7. seems like “the clouds” / las nubes, if i’m not mistaken. I remember keanu reeves in his movie, nature is beautiful, God’s creation, too.

    Breathtaking! It doesn’t matter how they turned out, what matters is how they affect the viewer; they fill me with peace. Love them.
