The horn of Kurnell

the faces of the cliffs
Apparently, according to chaos, if you tilt your head the right way there is a chicken in there 😉 I can see a eagle with a beard, but it is late 😉

The cliffs that adorn the sydney coastline are always full of surprises and unique subjects for a photographer and it is this that draws me back every time. The pools of water are always a great subject and when coupled with predawn light can really come alive.

One would never guess that only a few kilometres away are some serious industrial plants, the Sydney Desalination plant (aka we need a nuke plant to run it 😉 ) and of course the Kurnell refinery. I am not sure whether its absolutely amazing that these two environments co-exist or just down right depressing.

    Can I ask why you use the polarising filter with the ND filter please?

    Also, (while I'm annoying you), how dark is the LEE 0.9 filter? I'd assume close to an nd400 going by the exposure time?

    CPL is just habit, probably not really needed for a scene like this, however i often use it more as teh sun comes up or when I am on teh rocks – rather than take everything off and put it on then , i just whack it on at the start 🙂

    The lee 0.9 grad is 3 stops of light.

    The hoya ND400 is a 9 stop filter, much much darker.
    hope this helps 🙂 feel free to ask away 🙂
