Hampton Rocks

Happy Friday everyone.  Here’s another black and white long exposure, but this time from Hampton Beach in New Hampshire.  I met up with Bob Lussier for an impromptu shoot two weeks ago, and we had about an hour in the area to see what we could find.  These rocks immediately caught our eye, and we spent most of our time trying various long exposure compositions.  To get this 60 second exposure, I had to stop down quite a bit, and also stack a polarizer and my ND10.  Not an ideal set-up, but I still like how it turned out.

Have a great weekend.

    Remarkable. No sense of scale and my eye can almost imagine this is mist rolling onto a high mountain valley. I would say that’s a very successful outcome, Steven.
