A Full Moon...

  1. Moonrise | Maroubra Beach | Sydney, Australia 2008
    Bessa R2 | Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f2.0 | Efke KB50 | Rodinal 1:100

    About a 40sec exposure at f4.0
  2. Now you've done it - I'll be singing that Creedence song in my head for days! I like the way you have the moon and sky in the upper third of the image with the ocean and rocks dominating the foreground. Good stuff Mr. Landscape!:smile:

    When you make a print of this, I'll bet you stare at it for an hour!
  4. Thanks, Tim.

    Chris, I really want a large print of this. I start using some old Rodinal I found in the basement, and wow, are the tones so nice with this slow speed Efke film.

    Ray, although it does not look like it, I was waist deep in the surf for this photo. The Bessa was about 12 inches above the high-water line! And the new lens got nailed!

    It was tricky swell, I wanted this composition, but most of the time it was underwater, but about every 5 minutes or so the swell would pull back for about a minute and expose the rocks and sand.

    I was standing there for the longest time, trying to figure out how I was going to get the shot without getting wet, when I thought, Ray would be disappointed if I stayed dry! So I waded in. You have to remember it is winter here, so the air temperature was about 50° with water a little warmer, thank goodness!

    Odd thing is, I have been taking a hot shower with my tripod a lot lately...

    Wonderful shot! So much more exciting than my shot of the nearly full moon from the other night.

    I think you need to invest in an underwater housing for your gear. You will be spending the money you could use to buy another lens with on wet camera repair. :biggrin:
