Pulpit Rock before sunset
In March 2013, I organised a photo shoot with a group of folks whom I had never met before in real life, but had connected with on Google+. We met at Cape Schanck with the intention of photographing Pulpit Rock, and then doing some night-time photography. This is one of the images that I captured that evening. It was around 8:00pm on a March evening. The things that I looked for were low tide, a mostly clear sky, and a new moon. All three of these conditions aligned (which is a lot harder than you would imagine).
This image was captured using my Canon 5D Mark II with an ND400 filter, while the sun was dying. The 30-second exposure at f/22 turned the breaking waves into mist. This is a commonly achieved effect that really used to throw me off when I had first started out with photography. It now comes to me as second nature.
