On the down-low

On the down-low, originally uploaded by greenplasticdave.

It feels like ages since I've been out to do a sunrise shoot and since there was a forecast break in the poor weather we've been having I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get out there.

I can't attach my camera to the tripod without the centre column inserted so there is a limit to how low to the ground I can get using it. I wanted to get REALLY low here so whipped out the trusty gorillapod so I could get a few cms off the ground. Had to kneel with my elbows in the sand and everything :)

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom, originally uploaded by greenplasticdave.

I used a ND filter and an aperture of f/22 so I could leave the shutter open longer and capture more explosions :)
