Moonlight becomes you..
Arriving at Porthnanven in the Cot Valley at around 4.45am last Friday, having got up at 3 :|, I was rewarded with a very near full moon shining on the sea turning it a steely blue. I was soon joined by fellow blogger, Poppy and we quickly set about unpacking gear. We were both struggling to take our eyes off such a beautiful scene while getting tripods fixed and focus points found with the help of a torch, shining on the giant sized pebbles. With the waves crashing and the good ozone filling our lungs, it was difficult not to just sit, drinking it all in.
We were there to take photographs however and we set to it. Not having taken this kind of shot before, it was all a bit experimental but I’m quite pleased with the result. Waiting out the full 5 minute exposure, by the time I’d done a quick check and thought, ‘I’ll try a few more of those, perhaps a slightly longer exposure and a very short one to give me two images I can merge in Photoshop’, the clouds rolled in and this turned out to be my one shot at getting it right. I’d have liked the opportunity to merge a couple of images to give a nice clear, crisp moon but.. Well, I’ll be back. I hope you enjoy the picture .. ;-)
I’m having serious problems publishing at the moment. This post didn’t go out as it should. I have contacted WordPress but no reply so far so I’m going to republish. If you get the post twice my aplogies.. :|
