Photography: one more picture from the Spit Bridge marina

Because this file needed some digital mischief, but I’m extremely pleased with the way it came out. It’s similar in colour to one of the photos I posted yesterday, but it’s taken about half an hour later with the neutral density filter. The long exposure makes the water smooth and gives the picture the serene feel. You would never guess that there is an extremely busy road mere metres away.

Also, I don’t think that this small size does justice to the total awesomeness of this picture.

Photography: dawn at the Spit Bridge

As I said on Twitter, these last few days we’ve been having some really boring 100% clear skies at sunrise, which makes for nice weather, but also makes for featureless sunrises. It’s that clouds that make it interesting. So I’ve had to find some interesting features to fill the pictures instead. Last week, that was the city. I thought I’d try something different: the Spit Bridge marina.

Before dawn, you can see the stars in the sky.

Serenity oblivious to the morning traffic (not visible in the picture, but roaring past my back while I was taking this picture)

And yay for polarising filters!

Traffic rushes past the quiet spot.
