Beach motion

I mentioned previously the endless possibilities of capturing moving lights with slow shutterspeeds. Well if you move the camera with a slow shutter, you have infinite possibilities as well. Add color and you can be your own Matisse.

For something entirely different! At the beach the other day and an ominous storm came up. Over the ocean the lightning seemed to be rehearsing for armegedon. Thought I might improve on previous attempts. So set the tripod and since ambient light of twilight was still glowing, used a polarizer to lengthen the exposure. This gives you the time to capture one or several strikes. The aperature was f22 and shutter was opened for 2 seconds repeatedly till I had captured a few strikes. Got lucky with a few and liked this one best. The serenity of the seaoats and a passing storm, how symbolic of life!
