Winter Chill

Another image today from Portland Head Light in Maine.  No sun at sunrise usually means I’ll convert most images to black & white, especially long exposures like this one (yesterday’s post was an exception).  It was a cold 5 minutes waiting for this exposure, but ultimately worth the wait.  When it’s still early and the light is low, my 10 stop ND filter can make for some very long exposure times.  One of these days I need to get myself a variable ND filter so I can better dial in the right (read: shorter) exposures, especially for these cold winter mornings.  Be sure to click on the image for a larger view.
