March by AndyMumford March by AndyMumford
The Photo

Another shot from one of my favourite locations. I’ve come here once every year since I started photography, and usually get a couple of shots that I’m relatively happy with. This was taken back in March, on a day when we’d had a couple of storms.
Around sunset, the weather finally started to clear, and gave me some of the most unusual conditions I’ve had to shoot in…lot’s of pinks and turquoises in the sky and water.

This shot was taken a few minutes after the sun had set, and I used a 9 stop neutral density filter to really lengthen the exposure, and a 3 stop neutral density graduated filter across the sky to hold back the exposure there.
A cable release and mirror lock up kept the camera as still as possible on the tripod while the shutter was tripped to try to ensure maximum sharpness.

You'll go back there one year and it'll no longer be there! Not sure how it's standing now.....
Super shot, "cool" colours.
