Wow. What an unbelievable weekend of weather we just had in the northeast. 80+ degrees, blue skies, and best of all, no humidity. In addition to enjoying the long weekend with family and friends, I also managed to get out yesterday morning for some sunrise shooting up in Gloucester, MA. Although the sky was completely cloudless and not all that interesting, I did get some early morning images that I’ll share later this week.
Today’s post, however, is a shot I took on the ride home, having taken the scenic route back on Route 133 through the coastal towns of Essex and Ipswich among others. I had driven over this bridge in Ipswich in the past, and wanted to see if I could find an interesting angle to try some long exposures. The sun was already up, and while it was a decent scene, it wasn’t anything I was overly excited about. That is until I got back in the car and looked at the LCD on my camera. This swirling action of the river was not visible to me while I was composing the shot, but was so cool to see on the little screen. Single exposure of 30 seconds with some minor post-processing tweaks. Love when that happens.
