Another trip through the archive. This post was inspired by a recent comment regarding Ardrossan sunsets. I realised that a lot of them were either sitting on my hard drive or on my pbase site. So here are another 2 or 3 old images from the great summer of 2006.
The Old Ship.
Another trip to Portencross this morning. My main reason for the trip was to take some more images with the 10 stop ND, especially as the cloud formations were quite interesting. This image is from the pier (obviously). I played around with exposure times and the Hitech 10 stop ND allowed me to get the exposure to 61 seconds for this shot. Unfortunately, even though the sun was behind me, I had a few issues with flare and a slight magenta colour cast. It’s a pity as the effect is really good, but it’s hit and miss whether you can get a shot that doesn’t suffer from flare and colour casts.
The low early morning sun seemed to make the sailboat glow especially with the great sky above it.
Another shot from Sundays sunset at Portencross. This is the landscape format version of the previous image. I think I now prefer this one to the portrait version.
Yesterday was a fine sunny day. As the day wore on, it looked like there was a chance of a good sunset. I went to one of my favourite locations, Portencross in Ayrshire. As it turned out, the sunset wasnt the best but I still managed to get an image I was reasonably pleased with.
