It’s been a while since I posted a long exposure image, and I’m really pleased with how this one turned out.  This is one of the wooden jetties that protects the entrance to Three Mile Harbor in Easthampton, NY.  To get to this location on the western side of the channel you need to have 4 wheel drive, and I was fortunate that the friends we were visiting had a Jeep that they let me borrow.  I brought my boys with me as they love riding in the Jeep out on the beach, and we all had a really great time combing the beach, finding crabs, and of course taking pictures.  This is a nearly three minute exposure which tuned the water into silky goodness.  And a b&w conversion seemed to fit this scene to my liking.  I hope you like it too.

    Wow, that is absolutely beautiful!! The long exposure gives it such a dream-like quality, and the b&w is perfect for this shot. Nice job :).

    And pleased you should be! It turned out great. It is amazing how a 10 stop can turn a simple scene into dream world.

    Jetty in Heaven… Serene and beautiful. I’m on the west coast and this was the first email I opened. Great way to wake up.

    I would be pleased too if I were you. I love this Steven. The long exposure and B&W conversion are perfect. My advice…print it nice and big…it belongs on a wall 🙂

    Simplicity is ‘King’! Worked out so well here, Steven. I really must invest in one of these 10 stoppers.
