A couple of long exposure images from Safety Beach on the Mornington Peninsula.
Pictured below – The “gun barrel” shot, looking along the Safety Beach jetty out to sea.
Tech stuff – 13 secs, f/20, ISO 50, 10 stop solid + 4 stop grad ND filters.
This image is available to purchase as a print in many different sizes and forms here.
Pictured below – The Pipes on Safety Beach. They’re either twin stormwater outlets or torpedo tubes, …..I suspect the former rather than the latter.
Tech stuff – 30 secs, f/20, ISO50, ND400 filter.
This image is available to purchase as a print here.
I visited Grantville the day after Victoria had been hammered by unusually high rainfall.
Apparently the extreme rainfall was a side effect of cyclone Yasi’s passage across Queensland and into central Australia.
With the worst of the rain over, the day provided some beautiful photographic conditions with the sun filtered through an interesting arrangement of constantly changing storm clouds.
I love the beach down this way. Each time I visit here I discover something new.
Before I discovered photography I would never have guessed that I would find storm water drains interesting. 🙂
Below – “Purge” a storm water drain running into Westernport Bay.
For those who are interested in the technical details, the drain images are constructed using HDR tone mapping techniques. The long exposures were achieved using a combination of ND400 and ND8 filters on the end of the lens to smooth the waves on the water.
Below – “Running from the Idols” – another drain dumping water into Westernport Bay.
Below – “Grantville Jetty” – a view from the jetty looking out towards the boat ramp marker posts.
Below – “After the Rains” – a long exposure image from Grantville beach as rain clouds exit. An old boat trailer sits semi-submerged in the foreground.
