Ocean Gash – heath ofee dot com

I absolutely love having the ocean as a subject for long exposures. No matter how wild and aggressive the seas are, a 30 second or minute long exposure will calm the scene right down and leave the viewer with a whole different world to look at.

On the day I shot this, the wind was absolutely howling across the water and the ocean was ripping into the gash in the lava rock on the left of the frame. Despite what may seem like a furious scene from my description, I found myself completely at peace just watching the water come in and go out. What better way to capture the mood than with a long exposure.

Shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens, and a B+W 77mm 10-stop ND filter.

  1. Beautiful shot Heath, this scene looks pretty tranquil so without the write up I would assume it’s a nice calm body of water suitable for bathing in.

  2. Wow, this is stunning! The contrast of the rock to the water is what makes the photo, and the long exposure is just perfection. I’ll definitely be coming back to your blog!
