Monochrome Madness 2 49/52 Natural Bridge

I was over in Santa Cruz on Saturday photographing Hummingbirds then thought I’d head over to Natural Bridge Beach to do some long exposures since there was wind, and storm clouds on the horizon.

I used my 6 stop B+W Neutral Density filter to create this image. I wanted to retain some

movement in the waves rather than completely smooth it out.  It’s moody and just what I wanted.

But, I also tried some longer exposures with both a 6 stop and 3 stop ND filters on. Here one of those images.

It’s a subtle difference , but a wee bit smoother than the image above.

This is a door from the 3rd tier of Fort Point in San Francisco, CA.  I’ve blogged about the fort before here.

The arches in this fort are really neat. I had fun trying to find compositions, and shoot while the light was good. There were quite a few people here the day our Scott Kelby Photowalk group was here, so I had to wait sometimes for a long time to get an image without people in it.
Fortunately, no one else was interested in this door when I started photographing it.
