Cliff Hunting Trip-The End

leave a comment »

I ended up my Cliff Hunting Trip project with this few long exposure shots, captured somewhere in Snowdonia National Park Wales. As my personal experience, i had never seen such a view like this in my entire life. It’s such a calming place, with a big lake surrounded by mountains in front of me, the water itself transparent and i could see clearly small rocks through it, the water surface was so clear and i could see the reflection the mountains on the suface, the air was so refreshing and the moment became more meaningful as i experienced one of the most beautiful sunset in my life.

Those pictures below were captured during the blue hour (a few minutes after complete sunset). Since many people asked me how i got such purple color of the sky, so here i share the secret behind this color. With a normal shot, you will get a picture with dark blue color of sky. But i tried something new, with a combination of ND8, Circular polarizer and Cokin P121M (NDgrad) and shot using bulb mode, the color will mix up and produce such little purple color. If you move the P121M (NDgrad) filter, you will get a normal color of sky. That’s all….and..the best part of playing with filters & long exposure photography is that you will not need much editing process because the color and composition are already there. If you don’t believe me, try it yourself. Enjoy….

Cliff Hunting Trip-Aberystwyth Wales

leave a comment »

My journey continued along the coast of Wales directed to a small town, Aberystwyth. Aberystwyth is an extremely isolated town, considering the population density of the United Kingdom. The nearest substantial settlements are located at least 1 hour 45 minutes drive away: Swansea. But Aberystwyth is a historic market town and famous with beach. I got only 45minutes to shot in Aberystwyth, so here we go….
