Wood Jetty

September 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I had a great morning light while photographing the ocean in Rehoboth Beach, DE this past weekend. When I arrived at the preselected location, I knew the wood jetty was going to be a key component of my composition.  As dawn arrived, some great color developed in the sky and reflected a wonderful warm light onto the wet sand and the ocean surface. I busily proceeded to take full advantage of this spectacular morning.

I tried using different shutter speeds and apertures to slow the motion of the water and to create the most visually pleasing effect of the moving water. I was also trying to catch the water streaks on the beach for foreground interest as the waves were coming in and out. The light was changing quickly, so I had to work fast. Although my execution wasn't perfect, I got a few shots that I like and I got some new ideas for next time around. 

All images taken with tripod mounted Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM and Singh-Ray 3 Stop Soft-Edge Neutral Density Graduated Filter.
