Artist's Description

When you stand at the edge of a great ocean…you can sometimes feel alone…..

Sometimes an image just works better as a mono…it suits the mood more. The mood of how you felt when you took it or maybe the mood of how you felt when processing….

This is one of those images.


Using a 10 stop ND screw on filter has to be one of the hardest to use additions to my ‘kit’. I realised very quickly that once you screw it on the front…you cant see a thing through the viewfinder, and as I’ve seen some photographers use in conjunction with slot grad filters….therefore it requires composing the shot with the bare lens, then screwing on the 10 stop ND110 filter, then the adapter ring for the filter frame, the quite literally guessing how far to lower the grad filter before shooting…Then the fun really begins, no meter on the camera can give you an idea of exposure time so it really is….guess work…

So..if you have an afternoon spare..go and have a play because believe me…it takes an afternoon to come out with anything other than a black image!!..

But as always…just being there is the fun part..:))

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm @ 12mm
