Fun with 30 second exposures

IMG_7405-blogWe woke to a brilliant sky and even though it was a little chilly we jumped in the car and headed off to the beach with the camera.  Today’s pick of beaches was Waikanae and Paekakariki. Initially I was looking for the posts that are in the water to stop cars from driving up the beach but then I was visited mid photo by some seagulls.  They  were fluttering about bathing within my 30 second shot which made for a very interesting image. IMG_7432-blog Later at Paekakariki I was going for the water/sky image with little else in it, but there were lots of interesting waves giving me all sorts of lovely images.  I was also playing with moving the camera sideways at both beaches.IMG_7444-blogIMG_7439-blogIMG_7443-blog
