I headed out to Princess Bay on Wellington’s south coast this evening to try & capture one of the amazing sunsets you see from there. The sunset was ok – nothing amazing, but after waiting until just after the sun had set, that’s when I did get some amazing shots.
There happened to be a huge swell that evening & the waves were coming into the bay & crashing over the rocks. I decided to try some long exposures, so I put my camera on the pebbly beach, composed the shot, & set the exposure time for 15 seconds or so. What I ended up with was a series of dreamy shots as the last light of the day hit the rocks in the background, with the waves giving me the misty smoky effect you can see on the water.
