You have to walk the plants & water the dog..."house-sitting" for a friend at the beach.
He invited me to come see this awesome place with fantastic marsh views.
I brought my camera gear because he added it offers a beautiful sunrise too.
Well, as it happens when you have a beer or two, the old clock on the wall eventually said it was 2:00 am.
When I awoke around 10:00 am, the sun had risen hours before. I bet it WAS beautiful.
I noticed the clouds were scudding left to right at a pretty good clip.
Very quickly the blue sky would be gone.
Using ND (dark Neutral Density filters) to shoot in the bright light, I was able to slow my shutter speed down to a long time open.
A 15-second exposure showed everything else stationary but the clouds were in motion. The blurring effect was very obvious and added drama to the photo.
Still have to get a sunrise at the beach.
Have to keep an eye on the time.
(Click on the photos for more details.)
Sunsets happen later in the day.
And that's a good thing.
