Sunday Morning we were in Long Beach California, picking family up from the cruise terminal, we sat and watched the many people disembarking from the ship, there were many! It seemed they streamed off the ship forever.
Sitting and waiting, it was the first time in quite a while that I have had time to look around and just image what I might photograph. I had recently purchased a new multi-stop neutral density filter, and wanted to spend a little time discovering the possibilities. The coastline was hazy, and there was hardly a line between the sky and the ocean. The ocean is in constant motion, so I thought I would use the filter to allow for a long exposure, softening the waves and eliminating any distraction on the surface of the water, or birds that might be flying by. Giving a photo of soft blue in just about as many tones of can be imagined.
