Yesterday I went down to Pebble Beach here at Sea Ranch to try and capture some long-exposures with my ultra-wide angle lens. I was using some new gear that allowed me to attach some Black Glass to this lens, which is a favorite of mine because of its tack-sharpness. Some experiments go well, as this one did, while others not so well (you never hear about those.)
I called this the “Yin and Yang” because taken together, these two images capture the full range of the ocean’s energy, from its serene quite beauty to its full explosive power.
The first image is a long exposure (13 seconds) and reflects a more subdued mood. The second image (1/2 sec) on the other hand is all about the explosive power of the ocean; kind of an “Oooh, aah” moment like that from a 4th of July fireworks show.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these little snippets from Pebble Beach on a quiet afternoon with some rather unexpected “fireworks”.
Equipment: Nikon D810; Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 lens; Lee “Big Stopper” 10 stop ND Filter; Oben Tripod
