Richardsons Beach, Freycinet National park, Tasmania, Australia
I decided to try and capture something a little different in a number of locations in Tasmania. To pursue my interest in photographs that are less about the wow factor and more about the mood, with longer exposures to blend elements together. It was our first full day in this area and it was raining, but with the promise of really beautiful weather the day after this, we agreed to go and have a look around while we waited for the sun. I saw this rock from the car park so decided to set up my gear in the rain and walk the hundred or so meters out to it.
There was this really big wave surge here on this day. At times you could hardly see the rock at all and then at other times it was almost fully exposed. I set up and waited for the water to be in the middle some where and set about a long exposure of around 30 seconds. Overcast, wet weather in the late afternoon means low light and long exposures. Perfect for something a little different.
