Forgotten in the Fog

I'm really happy that I got the chance to shoot these oyster scaffolds on Tuross Lake under a heavy cover of fog.  I've been wanting to get a shot like these for almost as long as I've been playing with long exposure photography.  Although this spot was always on my list for my South Coast trip, it was kind of spontaneous stopping there on the way home, from shooting sunrise at Potato Point, to take advantage of the perfect conditions.

I normally shoot these sticks from up high on the road that runs alongside the lake, but the fog was too much to resist and I found myself trekking down the very steep incline to the lake shore to get a better angle.  

I dare say I will have a few more from this session to share.

After spending almost a week on the south coast I'm faced with the delightful dilemma of having to decide which of my bag full of great images to process first.

Here's a quick one to get started.

It was my first time to this location, a secluded little beach near Blackfellowes Point with some interesting rock formations.

As always, prints can be ordered from my website, below is a link to this image.

Forresters Flow

I went out seascaping this morning for the first time in a little while, to the familiar shores of Forresters Beach.

There was only just a little bit of water sitting on the rock shelf. After spotting a nice little water flow and setting up to capture it again, I was frustrated when that particular bit of rock then stayed dry for the next 5 minutes before I abandoned the shot.

I was contemplating a composition of the famous zigzag when I heard a wave unload onto the shelf. I managed to get myself setup up very quickly to capture this just as the water was flowing over the zigzag.

Felt pretty good to be out amongst it again.

See this image on my website below;

Sanctuary

Happened upon this gem this today.  This place is pure magic.  I spent the afternoon with my girls just lapping up the natural beauty, It really took me back to my youthful days of exploring creek-beds and that mystical feeling of discovering a special place.

Cathedral Rock, Kiama

This shot is from my second night of my south coast adventure earlier in the month and my first visit to this location.  It's kind of tricky to get to and you have to keep your eye on the tide to make sure you have a safe passage out when you're done.

There was not much cloud about save for some really low, light and fast moving cloud that was fairly close in.  This long exposure is probably my favourite shot from the evening there.  It was tricky getting sharp results with the low hazy cloud and relentless sea spray, but challenges are there to be overcome.

Sleep with one eye open

I love shooting this barn, and do so every time I'm down on the south coast.

I loved all the little birds flocking around so much that I took a couple of shots and stacked the birds to multiply the effect.  Then a quick run through Analog FX to give it the wet plate vibe that it was begging for.

Kind of feels like it should be in The Walking Dead opening montage.
