Timeless Tides

Last weekend I returned with a friend to my favourite "hunting ground" here in Perth. No matter how many times I go to this humble stretch of the West Coast of Australia I always find something new and different. Take these rock formations. I have not seen them so brilliantly strong and visible before. Imagine that during Summer this is all hidden under white sand.

It was getting rather dark at the time I took this shot but I managed to squeeze in a five minute long exposure and let the time enchant the rocks and clouds. It was the kind of scene that always makes me think of a long exposure. There were no cascades and the water was flowing in and out nicely and I am a sucker for that misty effect that is often a result of such a shot.

I had to compensate and extend the original exposure that I calculated due to fast fading light. I also used a polariser to cut through some of the reflections and to bring out more detail and colour saturation.
