What a cool weekend. Literally!!! I’m told that its always warmer at Rottnest but it still felt really cold to me out there. I have to admit this weekend I had very little success with the conditions and struggled to take a decent daytime shot. There was a stack of clouds that never quite made it over until today unfortunately so I had clear skies all weekend. What this did mean though was that night photography was definitely on the cards especially with an almost full moon.
I decided to try out the Canon 14mm F/2.8 lens that I had for the weekend and see what it could do. I headed up to Pinky Beach at Rottnest and setup my camera at the top of the stairs that lead down to the beach from the lighthouse. After a long exposure I managed to capture what I thought was a reasonable shot. Would I buy the Canon 14mm F/2.8? I don’t think so. Its a cool lens but it doesn’t do anything my 16-35mm can’t do and you can’t use filters on the 14mm which means more post processing work.
Lens – Canon 14mm F/2.8
Aperture – F11
Iso – 125

Hope you all had a warmer weekend than I did.
