Day 909, Holdfast Shores

With the current rebuilding of the Patawalonga lock walkway we have a new, but temporary, view of Holdfast Shores so hence the inspiration for creating this image.

An image like this one is not easy to come by. The long exposure requires that the conditions be very calm or else the boats would be a blurry mess. I guess I got lucky.

The second difficulty in creating this image is dynamic range. The range of lighting from light to dark is normally too extreme for a single image so multiple exposures were needed. Again, those boats needed to stay very still for a long time!
