Smoke On The Water – Long Exposures On The Sonoma Coast

If it wasn’t apparent by now, I am a big fan of long exposure photography. It is much more involved than just snapping a photo of a beautiful scene, and so allows you to really take the time to connect with a certain place and notice it’s nuances. One of the most interesting subjects for long exposure photography is water and it’s movement. Depending on how the water is moving, it can create the appearance of fog, like below –

 Or if the water is slower moving it can create the appearance of an almost fabric-like consistency, sort of an ethereal velvet.

 While these shots take a deliberate eye and a good dose of patience, they are almost always worth the time involved.
