Today’s photo is another from this past weekend in Pismo Beach.  I placed my tripod near the door, but forgot to put it in the car so I didn’t have it with me.  Luckily I keep the GorillaPod in the backpack and was able to stick it on a railing to get this shot.  It was about 10 at night, so there weren’t many people out but there were stars.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm, 46 seconds, f/8.0, ISO 100

Today’s photo is from Shell Beach this past weekend.  I stacked my two .6 ND filters and my circular polarizer and at f/18, I still could only go as low as 1.3 seconds.  I think I need a .9 or darker ND filter next time I go to the ocean.  Edited in Perfect Effects 4 and Lightroom 4.

Sunday morning I woke up in our hotel room in Seal Beach and wanted to take some pictures at the beach.  I knew it was too late for sunrise, but still early enough that people weren’t out.  I walked down to the beach and sure enough, there was only a handful of people there exercising.  I took a couple moments to enjoy the serenity of the nearly empty beach before taking a few photos.  This photo was taken with the Minolta 135 f/3.5.
