On the way to Fox Glacier

On our way to Fox Glacier we stopped at the beach. The conditions were moody making for some interesting B&W possibilities.  I like these two. The bottom image was made using a Singh-Ray 5 stop Mor-Slo allowing me to achieve a 12 second exposure to smooth out the ocean.

    While not your primary purpose, the additional exposure brings out the rocks on the beach, a nice touch of texture to contrast the smoothness. If cropped (pano) just below the mountain, it’s similar to some of the dune images you’ve shown.

      Good observation as usual Marty.

    Definitely moody. I really like the mist over the peninsula!

      I agree Howard. The mist made it!

    I like both images, but I must say I prefer the sky in the first image. I guess the long exposure smoothed out those clouds in the second image.

      I was wondering if someone would comment about that Jim. I too prefer the sky in the first images.

    The Moody Rhythm and Hues! I am assuming the top image was done with a telephoto and the bottom image with a wide angle as the distant cliffs are pulled in and more prominent in the top image. The Mor-Slo filter allowed for an awesome addition of softness, motion and glow into the image. For artist creativeness, it would be interesting to combine sections of the two images to create other possibilities… Great work and processing JB!

    Glad you had a great time there, John! It is a stunning place and I hope to get back there again soon myself. Look forward to seeing more images when you get time!!
