A shot I was considering for my week 37 pick. A 50 second exposure of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment before sunrise using a neutral density filter to achieve the exposure time needed. I wanted to blur the water and get some movement in the clouds.
One from the archives. I was a little surprised when I checked the date of this photo to find it was taken nine years ago this week.
I picked this shot because of the interesting layers of cloud. It’s one I have been meaning to post for some time. It shows a sailboat on Colpoy’s Bay with a section of the Niagara Escarpment and White Cloud Island on the horizon.
Monochrome Monday is going back a week when I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. With some interesting clouds and not a lot of colour in the sky I took some shots with the intention of converting them to monochrome.
I kept the foreground dark as that was how I remembered it. The only bright part of the scene was a band over the Niagara Escarpment.
Sunday morning of week 36 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. I was down there about 40 minutes before sunrise and this is one of the first shots I took. It’s a 13 second exposure which has softened the water a little, it was quite rough and choppy at the time.
Although it was taken 30 minutes before sunrise that’s not allowing for the sun having to rise above the Niagara Escarpment. If I recall correctly the sun was about 8 minutes late by the time it had climbed over the Escarpment.
