Oil Tanker Island

I love seascapes and I think the main reason is the unpredictability of what you are going to come home with. I sometimes get the opportunity to revisit a location and I always try and plan at least a couple of shots in my head, however more often than not i come away with totally different shots due to a lot of different factors.

On this day, i planned to be on that island out there..yeah..that long thin one you can see in the distance…so how did I end up over here taking this shot? I had a few sweet ideas in my head for long exposures off that really sweet rocky oil tanker shaped rock island but nature did not come to the party, sunset was at around 8 ish and low tide was at 5 pm, this little island is only accessible during low tide for a couple of hours, now i am always pretty keen but wading waist deep on a sand bar well past dusk did not sound like a good idea, plus i needed to be back at the campsite for a beer (i rarely get to have a few beers nowadays so thats a major driving factor 😉 )

Anyway, so i was stuck landside and this is one of the shots that eventuated, not quite the one I had in mind 🙂

Aperture: f/16
Shutter Speed: 4s
Exposure Mode: Manual
ISO Sensitivity: ISO 100

Circular Polariser, and LEE Graduated 0.9 filter

I love reading the comments that people leave and I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed and in my opinion everyone has a vaild poitn of view irrespective of skill and experience.
