Canal Rocks early morning sun

Sunday morning. I like trying to capture the water movement in the canal. There is always some experimentation necessary to get the right exposure as too long an exposure gives a total “whiteout” as the foam moves through the canal. It depends on the wave conditions breaking into the canal. This shot was taken as the suns rays began to hit the rocks.

    Nice work Ian! I have found 1.3 seconds to 1.6 seconds works pretty well!

    • Thanks Mark. You were on the bridge when I took that one! That was a 2.5 second exposure. At that location you have to leave enough time for the wave to move across the canal and down towards the bridge, so the foam moves far enough to leave patterns. You also have to wait until the foam has cleared and then take the first wave afterwards to avoid a “whiteout”. Where you were I see the 1.3 to 1.6 seconds works pretty well!
