and having had limited composition offerings at Coogee’s Ross Jones Pool (due to an unthinking tog who’d decided to camp out in the middle of the scene for the entire sunrise session) it was time to check out the greenery that was on offer right next to the pool and see if we could compose some shots without him and his tripod in them.
The tide was moving from low to mid so the rocks were still reasonably well exposed above the waterline but the water was coming up. This was pretty ideal for the lovely green covered rocks along the waters edge between the beach and the pool.
I tried some slightly slowish shutter shots (in the half to two second range – which is usually good for water swirling around rocks and waves washing in and out). However the tide was still too low and the water really wasn’t coming up far enough onto the sand or my green rocks for my liking so I added the Lee LittleStopper to the mix. This added six (6) stops of ND and turns seconds of exposure into minutes for this more dreamy look – and allowing the occasional high wave surge to come up and swirl water on the sand and greenery.
This just after sunrise but the heavy bank of cloud on the horizon was ensuring we wouldn’t get much of that…#coogee #sydney #seascape #longexposure #sunrise#LandscapePhotography +Landscape Photography#hqsplandscape +HQSP Landscape
