A couple of weeks ago I wanted to take some Pictures of the fishermen on the Shorncliffe Pier only to find it closed for repair. As I had driven all that way to be there before dawn I decided to make the most of it.
I started by capturing the the lights on the Pier reflecting off the water
As the Light increased I was able to use a slow shutter speed to get the motion of the Clouds
The Clouds started to disperse and the sky's were losing their interest so I tried a different tactic. I overexposed the sky blowing it out and went Black and White. The results were far from my normal style but I think they came out well.
I went back to colour while I explored the area.
I discovered these Pylons east of the Jetty. They took a bit to get to and it was lucky it was low tide. :)
As the sun got up higher I tried a HDR image to cover the Dynamic Range required.
After Photographing the Pier I drove around Cabbage Tree Creek to get this shot of a Trawler.
I was glad to get these images as it looks like the Pier will be getting a major facelift soon and will never look the same again. I have included the plans for the Renewal below if anyone is interested.
Till next time.
