Hidden Bay


With flashing headlights at the end of a track on a cold dark morning I thought I had found my own stalker lurking me into their den, but no it was only Jamie dressed like it was a balmy summers morning and me looking like I was ready to trek the south pole. After a somewhat uncomfortable decent due to twisting my ankle the friday evening we arrived at this tiny little bay that Jamie did not seem to remember due to the lack of water this time around. Jamie headed left I head right, this is one of the images I managed at 50 mm and 4 image stitch ( was going to be 5 but that last damn image on the left just would not sit right with the surf stitching so it was dumped for this purpose.

    i like the colours but I would like to see more detail in the sky.
    Maybe try painting with light a bit on the rocks in some ares to make them jump out!
    Good Stuff

    Hi Neal,

    I reckon this spot would just go off with the right conditions. I would like to have seen the vertical shots that you took. I managed to capture a bit more red in the rock but struggled with the stiching of the large waves. I’ll put up another shot that I took of this spot from five months ago tonight or tomorrow night. As for me wearing shorts, it was a warmish 9 degrees lol.

  3. Yes nicer skies would be nice. I have a few others that I am yet to finish up but just wanted to put this one up so Jamie could see something from our shoot. I’ll post some others when I get the time to work on them some more, they maybe keepers so taking my time with them a little more.

    The trip was pretty much an exercise in the use of the Nodal Ninjar as I wanted to use it before my overseas trip. I am still on the fence about carting it over there, will go out and shoot a little this weekend to see if I can not make better use of it. One think I did notice is the set up is a lot longer that what I am used to. Getting the camera level was not a problem when I use my ball head but this nodal is a right pain on sloppy beaches and rocky out crops to get level.
