Photo Of The Day 8/1/2012
Second Beach Sea Stack by Bob Faucher
For August 1st the Photo Of The Day is by Bob Faucher. He made this photograph in Olympic National Park in Washington and he submitted the photograph to the recent Coastlines Assignment. The photograph was actually taken by moonlight and Faucher used a 6-sec exposure on his Canon EOS 5D. You can see Faucher’s full description of the photograph here. Long moonlight exposures can yield a soft, ethereal effect. Here, the long exposure, calm sea state, light fog and overcast clouds all work with the moonlight illumination to create a beautiful, calming look in the photograph.
