I met up with a photographer friend of mine at Bonsai Rock in South Lake Tahoe last weekend to experiment with long exposure photography. Mike (you can check out his work at www.lagrangephotography.com) showed me the ropes and let me borrow one of his ND filters for this shot. It was such fun! Thanks again for the tutorial, Mike. And not letting me crack my head open on the rocks! 😀
This was a 30 second exposure, shot at f16 ISO 100 with my 24-70mm at 24mm. I also need a wide angle lens now. And an ND filter. That is all.

great shot. I keep meaning to buy some ND filters. I’ll add them to my christmas list
Yes, they’re definitely on my list! But most likely I’ll buy them for myself before then! 😉
Holy moly, that is GORGEOUS, Patty! I don’t understand this language you speak in yet 🙂 but am moved by the beauty of this shot.
You’ll be speaking it soon, Ngan! Promise! 😀
That is an awesome shot! Good job.
Thanks, Rob! 😀
Such a gorgeous shot!
Patty, that’s a stunning photo!
Thanks, Fida. Learning how to take this shot was such fun!
I have no words, absolutely fabulous!!!
Thanks for the kind words, Malar! 🙂
This is such a soulful shot Patty!
It is one of my new favorites, Sonal!
I need some lessons now. I have a super quality camera and I use my iPhone to click :).
Ooh! I wish you lived closer!!
I wish that too :). Some day!
Stunning photo Patty – your photo language is out of my realm but I will check out his site and have noted what you said you used to get such a spectacular shot 🙂
Hey Judy I will most definitely have to agree with you! On all accounts. Go Patty! Cheryl
Thanks, Cheryl!! 😀
Thanks, Judy. It used to be gibberish to me, too! 😉
Unbelievable shot, wow!!! Patty thats just beautiful.
Thanks, Suzanne! I want to go back and take more shots!
Spectacular shot, Patty! Absolutely gorgeous. ❤
Thanks, Nancy! 🙂
Wow!! Seriously awesome spot. Love the little light spots from the sun.
Yes, I love the sunflare in this shot. I had to reposition the camera a few times since the flare was cutting across the rock at first. 🙂
What a gorgeous shot! I’m soooo far away from that… 🙂
I bet you’re not as far away as you think!
Haha, I wish… 🙂
Is that all you need? Well, if it is going to help you take gorgeous pictures, then you should have it. I wonder who would buy it for you?
Funny you should comment right now because I was just browsing filters and lenses online. I only need $2000 for the wide angle lens and about $200 for the filter. Sounds reasonable. 😉
Ngan, this picture is so impressive 🙂
Patty, I need to change my pair of glasses 😀
Haha too funny! 😊
What an awesome photo! It must have been lots of fun!
PS, when we were in LA you told me that you own like a thinner case for the camera so you can put it in a (bigger) handbag? Could send me a picture of this through WhatsApp so I know what to look out for and buy one please?
Yes, I will text you pics later on today!!
Absolutely stunning Patty!! Wow!! Gorgeous shot!!
This is beautiful–makes me want to go there! 🙂
I’m ready to go back! We can go together! 😊
Oh wow, this is just gorgeous Patty…makes me feel peaceful and serene…:)
Gorgeous, patty! Love the sunburst and soft light! I need a wide angle and ND filters too (i guess I shouldn’t say “need”) ☺
Yes, you absolutely”need”…I highly recommend you “need” any and all camera accessories!! 😄
So beautiful and peaceful…it could even be printed on a canvas 🙂
Thank you, Laila!
beautiful shoots, especially the direct sun ray
i guess it’s worth to risk to burn your lensa senson by directing it to the sun, lol
I used a neutral density filter on the lens. It blocked 9 stops of light. 🙂
That’s so neat! What does an ND filter do?
An ND filter blocks light, which means you can shoot long exposures during daylight hours!
