It occurred to me this morning that all I have to do is go into to my back catalogue for photo ideas. So here we are again at the Tor at Waiake Beach. I was last here November 2006.

It is interesting to see how the Tor has changed over the last 16 years. There is a couple of large trees completely missing.

The Photo
Of the 20 odd photos I took tonight, this is the first one I looked at. It may not even be the best from tonight's mission but I'm happy with it given where I'm at with my camera again. It's a 20 second exposure with the 10 stop ND Filter on the lens, taken about 10 minutes before sunset.

Post processing was mostly just fiddling with exposure, including a path around The Tor to brighten it up a bit and then Filmic RGB for some contrast.
