Ok, this is the last Lauderdale shot for a while. I’m hoping to shoot the Iron Pot at dawn Soon.
I’m hoping to get another shot from this location using a 10 stop filter. It should really bring out the colour. I’m just waiting for the right weather, it’s been very overcast at the wrong times for the past week.
This morning I saw the best sunrise we have had for a few weeks, I’ve been waiting for just the right amount of cloud and light. I shot a few good shots, and could not decide which ones to upload. So I’ve uploaded 2.
I’m really missing my wide angle lens, but the 24-105mm is serving me well. It’s certainly not as sharp as my old 16-35mm. Most of the exposure were long in low light, so complete manual focus and no IS. At 24mm it’s not to bad, and you can still fit a fair bit in the shot, but I’m really looking forward to my new 17-40mm. I could see myself with a 24mm TS-E in the future for sure.
Allocating time for photography need not be costly. Today I allocated just 20 minutes to go and take some pictures. This shot was taken in Ralphs Bay, just a stones throw from the main road. The sunset was not all that great, but I enjoyed making the most of it.
It was taken with the canon 24-105 IS, because I had no other suitable lens. 2 x hi-tech filters stacked, with an f22 aperture and long 25sec+ exposure, and me, acting as a wind break.
