reluctant spring

The weather so far this spring has been, shall we say, temperamental. I’m sure things will get warm and sunny very soon, but in the meantime here’s a shot from a very moody morning at the beach.

Yesterday morning I enjoyed a beautifully mild, breezy wander at the beach. I decided to try experimenting with my 6-stop ND filter and different shutter speeds to see what effect it would have on the appearance of the water. By changing my lens’s aperture, I ended up with a 1.3 second exposure for the top photo, and a .6 second exposure for the bottom.  Do you have a preference?

rock solid

There is something reassuringly solid about this landscape. The rocky shore endures the battering of the waves, the rise and fall of the tide, winter freezes and summer’s baking sun. It seems as though the only thing this beach wouldn’t be able to withstand is a rise in ocean levels, which may eventually drown it, and what a shame that would be. For now, though, it is holding its own.
