More long exposure experimentation at Vancouver City Hall. It was very windy and I wasn’t sure if my tripod would remain steady with a 406 second exposure. I used 19 stops of neutral density and some post in Lightroom to achieve this result.

I’m getting a little behind in posting my weekly photos, but rest assured, I’m still creating one each week. This past week was my first chance to test my new Formatt-Hitec 100mm filters (an attempt to standardize my filters across different lenses). I shot this one at one of my favourite spots to capture the late afternoon light and the city skyline.
Technical notes: 10 stop ND + 3 stop soft edge grad ND, 30 second exposure, processed entirely in On1 2018 software. Anamorphic crop (2.39:1)

Snow in Vancouver, quite unusual. Picked a bright sunny afternoon and headed to Camosun Bog at the edge of Pacific Spirit Park with my X-T1 and Rokinon 12mm to get more comfortable with the manual focus of this lens. You’d think it would be pretty simple with a 12mm lens! The image below is the trail to the bog.

Top shot is the same afternoon with snow covering the carpet of moss in the bog. Bottom image is in that same spot last summer. (Fujifilm X-E2 | XF35mm f1.4 R)
