"Altar of the Sun Gods" -

I am dedicating this image to my good friend +dene' miles, in thanks for her amazing support and for accompanying me on my photographic journey of discovery (in spirit) rock girlfriend :-)

This is an 167 second exposure of a small spit of land in the Strait of Georgia in West Vancouver, British Columbia.

I used a 10 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard grad ND filter to get the effect I was after.

It was raining really hard that day and I learned the art of balancing an umbrella on my tripod and under my chin, whilst changing filters, etc. I got wet, but the camera stayed dry, which is the right result :-) This is probably my favorite image from 2012 so far...I'm loving the photographic journey!!
