While waiting for long exposures to complete using my NDX400 filter (sometimes as long as 16 minutes for the fifth exposure in a bracketed series!), I often go walkabouts to find the next spot I want to shoot from. This particular time, I happened to climb up onto some taller rocks at the rear of the beach, where I found a great view of Point Nepean on the horizon in the background just above the far end of the pier.
With only moments to go before the sun was due to make an appearance, I scrambled back down to the camera (which was on the rocks near the front left of this image), abandoned the 8 minute exposure that was presently underway, and rushed to get it all set up in the new spot. When I saw this image, I felt the rush around had paid off smiles
