Deerness

 

This was taken in July on our visit to Orkney. ┬áIt was just off the coastal path from near a collapsed sea stack called The Gloup on the far east of the East Mainland. I was struggling to keep the tripod from moving in the wind. I took a few and this one was the sharpest (although not so much when you zoom in!). There is an echo of the previous photo’s composition in this (see Moon Over Orkney).

Here is another picture from the harbour using the 10 stop NF filter. 8 seconds at f11. I quite like the 2 halves of the busy harbour composition in the top half and the way the long exposure calms this down below. Yin and yang I suppose.

As I mentioned lsat week, here is a long exposure image of Dysart Harbour. 8 second to be precise – I still think I have to guess until I remember that digital records all that kind of data whereas with film and light meter it was a case of one elephant, two elephant…

The water was very calm, just gentle swells of water coming through the harbour entrance so it created more of a sheen than anything, which I like. I was thankful to the angler who remained very still, unaware of the needs of the ND filter
