Before the tide by Mel Brackstone

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

I went to the wreck with Jonathan to shoot the king tides project and was lucky enough to get a great sky! This was shot a good 4 hours before high tide, and the water was already at the normal high tide position then!
Woody Point, Queensland, Australia – f/6.3, 1.6", ISO 100, 1.2 Lee ND Grad and .6 Lee ND Grad. Pretty much straight out of the camera, same as the others.
