  1. This is really beautiful. What was the weather like that you had that fog on the ground but it looks like a bright day? If I had taken this picture, I would be so proud. :)

    1. Glad that you like the photo, Chris!

      This is a very long exposure, about 4 1/2 minutes. Such long exposure times render the water into this very “milky fog” where the waves break. This photo was made past sunset, I think I used a 6-stop ND filter to get the 270 second exposure time.

      If you’re interested to know more about long exposures, I have a (technical) blog post up where I describe my approach to make these photos: https://alexkunz.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/working-long-exposure/

      If you’re curious to see more photos, the blog posts with photos where the effect shows are archived here: http://www.alex-kunz.com/tag/long-exp/

  2. Of course I like this photo. It’s pretty darn amazing. It may bump out Searchlight Sunset as my favorite. ;) I will read your blog post about long exposures. Thanks for sharing the information.
