Land's End

June 26, 2012  •  1 Comment

I've wanted to take this shot for a while but it needed a specific set of circumstances which hadn't come together for me before tonight.

The steps down to the beach in Scarborough's North Bay flood at high tide. I knew that a long exposure of these might work but it needed a high tide, and a featureless grey sky to frame it. I've tried a couple of times before but each time there was too much detail in the sky for me.

Tonight everything came together. I set up my tripod just out of reach of the waves and spray, used a Lee Big Stopper to slow the exposure down and locked the remote shutter release. After 3 minutes I released the remote and checked the shot, that was it, the one I've been waiting for, finished in one three minute shot. I hope you like it.
