This is an image I made yesterday morning about 30 minutes before sunrise. It was dark…of course…and the wind was really howling. There was a front making it’s way through Rockport from the southeast. With the help of some moonlight, I was able to see the clouds over the horizon really zipping by.
Since the clouds were moving so fast, and the waves were running, I decided to do a single long exposure to make the image. Since the piers were stationary, I could have them as sharp as possible. The long exposure smoothed out the bay and really celebrated the fast-moving clouds.
I made this image with a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon 17-40mm lens at 34mm. I shot it at 25 seconds at f/16 with an ISO of 1600. Let me know what you think…SEF
