I was working late on Friday and just about to head off base when some clouds over the bay caught my eye. I headed over to the Officer’s Club Beach area and braved the gusty winds to do some shooting. My original plan was to shoot some long exposures of the water and fast moving clouds, but the sun was still pretty high and I wasn’t really feeling the shots.
As my battery was dying (I don’t know how I can own 6 batteries and still not have a working one with me at all times…), I set up a shot at this sculpture along the seawall and shot a 30 second exposure. The cool thing about the clouds that day is there were 2 different layers. The high clouds were traveling quickly from East to West, and the lower cumulous clouds were traveling North and South. This created a really cool long exposure and I really like how the sculpture anchors the scene between the 2 areas of motion.(Click to view larger in the light box)
