Jetty now closed

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.
