Long Reef sunrise


Part of a sunrise shoot at Long Reef, located in the Northern beaches near Warriewood.  There are plenty of rocks which make for interesting subjects and foreground.  Coupled with long exposures and good light, and most shots tend to turn out pretty good.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkII
Lens: TS-E 24mm f3.5L II
A 15sec exposure was used, aided by my Cokin graduated ND8 filter.  It was took dark to use my B+W 10 stop ND, that would have led to shutter speeds in the range of minutes.  The tide was a bit too unpredictable for me to be standing in the same spot for that long.  The actual sunrise wasn’t the greatest, but even then I still got the right type of light for some of the shots I wanted. 

Hit the polls and tell me which beach is your favourite to photograph (at any time).
