Another Long Exposure

Long Exposure Goose

(click on the image for a larger version)

This was a strange image. I was trying out a few long exposure images, and there were quite a few wildfowl about – they explain the ‘smudges’ in the centre of the image. All apart from this one goose, that stood stock still for over 50 seconds, the only one of about twenty birds that actually appeared in the final image.

Photography stuff: 12-24mm lens at 12mm, 51 seconds at 7/9.0, tripod, 3 stop ND grad filter, 10 stop ND filter
