On Monday, I gave a lecture and then did an image processing seminar for The Photography Club of Cape May. What a wonderful group.Thank you for the warm welcome.  After the presentations, ten of us went to dinner together. While we ate, a huge storm moved in dumping buckets of rain. As we exited the restaurant it was raining lightly, but, when we looked to the west, we saw the sky brightening. My head said, I have a two plus hour drive home, I should head home, but, my heart said, I must go, it looks so promising! I followed my heart. Three of us raced to Cape May Point to see what we might catch. Off to the south east, the the sky was pitch black, filled with visible strikes of lightning. However, off to the west there was an opening at the horizon. As the sun sank below it, the sky lit up casting an orange glow on the faces of those partaking of this magical moment. After I caught my breath, I managed to pull out a Sing-Ray 5 stop filter and get this long exposure image as a memory of the special experience. It is after all about the experience right? The images are just icing on the cake. Please click on the image to make it bigger to see the details. If you like long exposure images, I highly recommend the Singh-Ray Mor Slo series of neutral density filters. Use the code Barclay10 for a 10% discount when you order.
