Another Sunset at Muriwai
While the conditions on the drive out were looking favourable for an epic sunset featuring a sky filled with moody red clouds the reality was a vast blue and rather uninteresting sky. So, as the sun was out and getting nice and low in the sky I fired of a few (and by few I mean hundreds) shots of the Gannets in flight (they've returned since my last visit).
Then I pointed the camera down and went for this classic, slightly overdone, angle focusing on a Gannet colony. A polariser and 3 stop ND filter slowed the shutter down enough to get some nice movement in the water and a second exposure 2 stops below allowed me to keep the sky exposed.
