Having finally manage to get my hands on a Canon RC-6 remote control I decided it was time to go beyond my normal 30 second exposures and push to the 2-3 and even four minute captures.
It is amazing just how long two minutes feels when you are waiting for a photograph to be taken hoping no one will walk across the frame of view. The following photos are from my flickr stream, click on an image to view it larger on there.
The fact the clocks went back one hour overnight meant the sunset was around 5pm so it was a great learning experience to try and adjust to the rapidly decreasing light levels. This photography of Holywood Yacht club shows the glow of Belfast in the distance. This photograph was shot without the ND10 and a 30 second exposure at f14.
On leaving Holywood and heading towards Belfast we discovered the annual fireworks display in fun flow. Stopping at the nearest car park the final long exposure of the day was caught at 30 seconds.
No day out would be complete without just one photo with the X100. This capture is a stone FlixelPix junior found on the beach.
The photos definitely look a little better on flickr so click on any of them to view them large. More of the long exposure series can be found on flickr here.
