These more traditional views of Otter Cliffs are from last weekend when I was in Acadia going crazy making images where I moved the camera. Couldn’t resist some “normal” photography, especially when there was nice light.
The first photograph was an exposure of 0.8 seconds, and the shutter speed chosen contributed to the motion effect created by the water. Back to back waves breaking on the shore added something dynamic to what was a beautiful view with a somewhat boring sky. Even though this image was made at low tide, the force of the waves was pretty intense.
The image below from very close to the same location was made with an exposure of 1.3 seconds, and you can see the impact that having the shutter open for longer had on the water. Gone is the power of the waves, and it is replaced by a softer, smoother form of motion. Different images of a similar scene… I like them both 🙂
