2am Mindarie beach

2am Mindarie beach
After weeks and weeks of being clouded in when I got up at 1 am there was no clouds about. A view of Mindarie beach looking towards the South and Fremantle Glow. this is less than 5 min from home even a peak time. this is a full 360 degrees or 13 shots to get the whole way around. It was so hot I was sweating in shorts and singlet, Lightening inland and way out to sea.

The shot was taken with a Haida 77mm clear night filter on my 16-35mm f4 lens as my first try with a Clear night filter to kill the light pollution. the filter was mainly bought for my deep space shots but was worth a go.

While the light glow has been cut back the Milky way Bow in the shot is still effected by the whole light plume from the City Starts over the city and finished at the walk way to the beach. This was taken well within the City limits of the Northern end of Perth. this will be part of my normal night shooting but I have had to get a 150x 150 mm for the 14mm lens and modify a holder to take the filter.

Bello scatto nell'ora blu

this most defiantly is not the Blue hour shot at 3 am but the effect in the dark of night with a "Clear Night Filter " over the city lights.
