Before I went to Mexico, I bought myself a B+W 10-stop ND filter with the hope of capturing some cool images while down there. It definitely took me a while to get the hang of using it, but it was a fun learning experience and I think I was able to get a few decent shots. The hardest part for me was getting these long exposures with no cable release, since I forgot to pick one up before I left. Basically I was stuck like an idiot holding my shutter button down for minutes on end trying to stay as still as possible to eliminate camera shake…not cool. A few of the long exposures came out a little fuzzy because of this, unfortunately.
Something about footsteps in the sand on an empty beach is very peaceful. This image brings me back to the morning I took it and the feeling of solitude I had while shooting. I hope you enjoy it.

Beauty Heath! Love the processing and the 10 stop effect! Well done!
Hey buddy nice to see a 10 stop from you. I’m surprised at how well this turned out if you were indeed holding the shutter the whole time. A bunch of my shots were ruined just from the wind gusts and can be a bummer when you wait around that long for exposures. Can’t wait to see more buddy!
Great shot, Heath! Also impressed at how clear it turned out without a cable release!!
Awesome you got one! Pretty jealous. This came out great and really impressive you held that shutter down the whole time.
Great shot Heath! Gotta get me one of those 10-stops 🙂
This is awesome Heath… great job!
God bless you Heath, I love these kinds of long, B&W exposures…the footprints make it unique and interesting.
Need to get me one of those filters too!
Excellence here, my friend. The elegance to this simple B&W is tremendous.
I love these pictures – so gentle and serene! The 10 stop ND filter on my wish-list is still sitting there unbought so I know what my first photography purchase of the new year is likely to be.
Thanks so much for the great comments, everyone! I had a blast shooting with the 10-stop and I can’t wait to share more with you all.
