The good side of jetlag is it makes it easy to get up before dawn and be rewarded by landscapes such as this one…
This was my first experiment with stacked ND64 filters for long-exposure shots in broad daylight. I quite like how it came out!
Port Mélite is a natural harbor on the coast of the small Island of Groix in Brittany. When I was there on vacation I headed out there every evening for sundown, and this is one of the most interesting shots I managed to get.
Le Pont des Arts is a famous footbridge in Paris, particularly popular with young lovers. It crosses from the Louvres to the Institut de France. I was trying to shoot it in a way that was different from all the classic shots.
One of the wonders of doing long exposure shots of water is you don’t really know before hand what the final picture will look like. That’s because you’re never quite sure what amount and texture of light will be hitting the water during the exposure. It’s only when I was processing Mercury Sea ( a shot of the cove of Port Mélite in Groix) that I noticed that metallic glint on the water that really makes the shot (in my opinion).
