Cape Nojima

I need a break from all the snow, so what better time to dig up some photos from last Autumn that I never got around to uploading. 


In November I went down to the Southernmost tip of Chiba peninsula to help out with a bird monitoring survey. 

I arrived a few hours earlier than the others so I could take some seascapes. I had never been to that part of the coast so didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a good little location, and the sunrise wasn't too bad either.

When I first arrived here it was pitch dark, and I found my way out to the shore with a headlamp. It wasn't until it started getting light that I was able to see these rocks in the water. They hadn't shown up on Google maps, so I was quite happy when they came into sight.

I used a dark filter for this one, allowing a long shutter speed to really blur the water.

 

Before sunrise, I actually thought it was going to be cloudy. Then suddenly the sun popped up on the horizon.

I took this one with a telephoto lense when the sun first came up above the horizon (300mm).

There's a seagull in there if you look carefully. That was the first bird I wrote down for the day!

 

Which one do you like? I like the top one now that I've had a few months to think about it.
