Moody Seascape Photography in Culburra Beach

Sometimes the weather just isn’t what you want it to be. Sometimes you just have to go with it. My partner, dog and I have been on holidays 3 hours south of Sydney. The weather has been blah: drizzling and overcoast. Time for some moody seascapes.

Neutral density filter, tripod and raincoat, I braved the wet to capture some coastal images of the little town of Culburra. Stay warm.

  1. Very moody indeed.
    ……and can you please send some of those dark rain clouds down south to Melbourne. It’s getting hot again 🙂

    I’ve never bought, or used, a neutral density filter and as a consequence, used to always find it hard to get some nice beach images (on a hot day in particular) with my Canon DSLR. I think I need to read up on how to use them first though.

    My only other option is to use my Sony a6000 on the Intelligent Auto setting. Captures excellent sunsets and I imagine would do as well as using a neutral density filter to cut the glare during the day. If the contrast between sky and land is considerable, the Intelligent Auto setting takes severe shots automatically and combines them to give a well lit and balanced image.

    There’s always so much to learn about photography. Doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur like me or a professional. That’s one of the things I like about it. There’s always a new challenge or a variety of ways to achieve the same result. It’s one of those crafts which you can enjoy for many years as it’s a constant journey of surprise and discovery.

  2. Hi Vicky, ND filters are a lot of fun, although the feature on your Sony sounds really cool too. I bought some cheap filters off eBay just to see if I would use them- I get some use out of them and I am happy with the results. Very happy to send some rain your way-feels like summer is over up here!
    I love that too about photography- it is always about learning and sharing knowledge. (I worked in fashion for a while, it it seemed the complete opposite.
    Best wishes, Don
