Elephant Rocks.

Posted by mervfrench on February 11, 2010

Another little  secret location that not many have seen.  🙂

Just next to Greens Pool at William Bay is Elephant rocks on the south coast near Denmark . I’ve been to this spot a couple of times before but never with the camera gear I have now. This was shot in the middle of the day with the 10 stop Singh-Ray  Duo filter and is a 3 second exposure.

There were quite a few people around so it was hard to get a shot without kids running around , a bit frustrating for me but good fun for them.

There was  a bit more foreground in this shot but I had to crop it out as the small waves wouldn’t line up at all with a 3 sec exposure. I could probably make it work but I couldn’t be bothered taking the trouble to do it this time .

The south coast has a lot to offer photographers and I intend to get down there again as soon as I can.

      Hey Dave, we were out there NYE , were you with the group on the rocks at Greens Pool at sunset playing music and generally having a good time ?

        Nah, sounds like I should have been! Were you at Elephant rocks when the young dudes in the red shirt just would not get off them?

        Go my church one up now as well.

    That is a beauty – that 10 stop ND may have to be my next gadget. Hey and nice frame too.

    Adrian , mine is a Singh-Ray duo variable. That is it’s variable from 2 to 10 stops by turning the filter and it also has a built in polariser as well which can be set independently to the ND. Mine came from the states and they are a bit on the expensive side.

    Try Camera Electronics in Stirling St they have screw on 10 stops, i know a couple of the guys got there’s from there at reasonable price , nowhere near what i paid.

  10. Nice one Merv. Looks pin sharp and has those colours which sell a picture.
