a log, a photo opportunity

wpid486-20090408-7026.jpgI went down to the Bayfront here in Hilo yesterday, just looking for an opportunity to take a few pictures. The canoe clubs were out paddling and it was raining on and off. The light was grey, but I didn’t mind – in fact, it’s what I wanted. The dim light would mean that I could use longer exposures and my aim was to try and capture an image which would depict both still-life and motion.

Walking along the bay, I came across this log which was being buffeted by the waves. I set up my tripod in the wet sand and started trying to create the effect I was looking for. Here are some of the better ones.
