Shores of Neptune

By CraigBill    
The California coastline displays some of the most dynamic and moody seascape scenes - even dangerous. Especially the North California coast. Here, the slightest change in atmosphere can make for a bad outdoor experience if you get caught out in it with all of your equipment. So, that being stated, this can be a unique and rewarding challenge to set-up in.

By the time I hiked down to Enderts Beach, it started to rain and the wind kicked up bad - and I contemplated not going any further. But I do know how sometimes uncomfortable weather can make a great photograph, and I was right! "Shores of Neptune" was captured as a long 40 second exposure. The sun had already set and it was getting very dark. In fact, it was getting too dark even for long exposures, but at least the wind died down. I took advantage of the already shadowy blue scene by adding a cool lens filter to preserve the misty blue feel of the surrounding seascape.

Great image, and the video gives useful background (though I think the commentary would have been better as voice over recorded away from the wind noise). Hope to see more of your images of the coast. SmileSmileSmile
