Oceanside South Jetty V

This long exposure (6 minutes) on the South Jetty in Oceanside, CA was one of the last images I made from on top of the jetty on this trip. There was enough light to frame and focus the image with live view. I used aperture priority to determine the average exposure of the scene then attached a Schneider Optics ND3.0, 10-stop neutral density filter to my Canon 16-35 f2.8L II wide angle zoom lens. After calculating the adjusted exposure I triggered the shutter with my cable release and started the timer on my iPhone.
