Strange Light

Below are three images from our recent trip to Inari in northern Finland, where the atmospheric conditions, near darkness and 30 to 60s long-exposures have resulted in some strange light effects and colour casts.

I did think about not sharing these images on the grounds that the white balance is clearly a bit off. But the more I looked at them, and worked on them in post processing, the more I came to quite like the results…..I think they have an interesting other-worldly quality to them.

Incidentally the red light trails in the second image are from a line of snowmobiles crossing frozen Lake Inari during the long-exposure:

Meols Sea-wall

I had a couple of hours to spare last Sunday and as the weather was half-decent for once, I thought I would take the opportunity to try some daylight long-exposure shots using my new 9-stop ND Filter. So I headed off to the coast at the North-end of the Wirral peninsula:

Meols Sea-wall 2

Meols Sea-wall 3

Meols Sea-wall 4

Meols Sea-wall 5

How cool to be able to get five second exposures in the middle of a bright sunny Winter’s day…….I think I’m going to enjoy using this filter…:0)
