North Avoca, NSW, Australia

I was on my way home from scouting another location, and the sun had just set, when I saw the opportunity to capture this ethereal ocean mist, so I scrambled to get my tripod and camera set up before the light ran out completely. The sea was so peaceful and there was no wind, just the gentle ebb and flow of the ocean over the rocks. Because the water was so calm and the light was so low I had to take very long exposures - up to 4 minutes - to capture the movement of the water. Long exposures like this can be problematic, because when you shoot for this length of time, all the mathematics required to calculate your exposures goes out the window. You never know if you’re shots worked out, until your film is developed.
