Colours of The Horizon

Back to the coast of Western Australia for this long exposure photo that I took just a few days ago. In between the processing of photos from our last trip and working, it was great to get out for a bit to the shores of the Indian Ocean and photograph some seascapes.

Looking for a bit of dynamic drama in the foreground, I just could not get the right kind of flow in between the rocks from shorter exposures. The waves were washing out any detail in the foreground rocks and I decided to go with a long exposure for the misty effect and also to catch some of the beautiful after sunset glow on the horizon.

I think that this allowed me to reveal just enough detail in the rocks without losing that ethereal mist effect. I am always astonished by the effect that a long exposure can produce. These rocks were not big at all and yet to me it feels like I am about to step off the edge of the world when I look at this scene.
