Long Exposure Photography

2/365: Faded Meets Color

In this long exposure photo taken a few weeks ago at Murrell Park on Lake Grapevine I have titled ‘Faded Meets Color.’ The faded solitude of the lake water meets the colorful beach party of the rocks, to blend into infinity, forever connected and no longer faded.

I searched the shoreline for awhile looking for this spot and once discovered I feel in ‘composition lust’ with the dead log which had drifted ashore and the large tree stump making itself noticed as it bursts out of the faded lake water. I took several different photographs with the driftwood in different locations along the shore.. this spot ended up being my favorite.

This photo was taken with my Nikon D810 and Lee Filters Big Stopper and Circular Polarizer for an exposure time of 30 seconds at f/8.0, ISO 31 – 14mm.
