Photographer's Note

This a closeup of some rock formations off of Cathedral Point on Anacapa Island. Anacapa is part of the Channel Islands National Park and I've made a couple other posts of this interesting island earlier this week. I hope to roll this and other pictures into a travelogue real soon.

While Anacapa is a small island and can be covered quickly, being "stranded" overnight on the island gives you some time to linger at the viewpoints and explore different compositions.

Here I wanted to experiment with some really long exposures during a slack tide to create a glassy background around these interesting little rock formations. While this is not terribly sharp, you can also see some shorebirds on these rocks as well. This was taken during a very overcast morning and while a wider view of this area was very beautiful, the white sky hanging over the landscape would not have done it justice. So I used my telephoto to isolate some of the rocks and the nice color of the water around them.

I used a warming polarizer, ND3, and ND6 filter for this shot. Total bulb exposure was about a minute.
